AMSTERDAM CONNECTION is formed by the passionate and qualified musicians Tim ‘Harmony’ Welvaars (jazz harmonica & piano) and Naomi ‘Smile’ Adriaansz (tenor and alto sax).
Spreading harmony and love through music is their mission. In their own unique way creating the remarkable fusion of the dark tenor sax and the joyful harmonica. Their trade mark! Their main driving forces : filling everyone with harmony and peace, at any place where Tim and Naomi are invited to play their music live!

ABOUT the latest album "Isn't She Lovely" - Tribute to Stevie Wonder
In February 2017 Amsterdam Connection released their latest album, called "Isn't She Lovely". A full album of 10 instrumental Stevie Wonder classics, in a very soulful smooth jazz sound.
It features some of the best American musicians of the scene, including bass legend Nathan East, smooth jazz guitarist Paul Brown, jazz fusion guitarist Marc Antoine and Jessy J on flute.

Paul Brown
The latest album has been fully recorded and produced by multi-Grammy Award winning PAUL BROWN in Los Angeles. He earned an impressive string of 40+ number one hits. Paul has worked on projects with legends like George Benson, Al Jarreau, Joe Cocker, Luther Vandross, Larry Carlton, Patti Austin, Norman Brown and Boney James.
