Afterwards Udo became a member of the Tim Langedijk Trio, featuring Hans van Oosterhout on drums. He has been with them for over eight years now and they’ve released four CD’s, pianist Jasper van t’ Hof collaborating on the CD “November.” In 2014 'On' was released, a quartet record with Udo's own compositions.
