WATCH

The Turkish influence in Sanem Kalfa’s vocals (and her electronics) and the Romanian roots of George Dumitriu (guitar, viola) have made a strong impression on the Netherlands’ diverse and adventurous scene and undoubtedly on JPN members’ during recent visits to Rotterdam.

The remarkable chromatic harmonica player (undoubtedly the hit of the jazzaheadshowcase programme 2018 and of InJazz, Rotterdam) with award-winning pianist Rembrandt Frerichs (recently heard at Ronnie Scott’s), plus double bass drums – a band that proved perfect for Going Dutch and UK/Irish audiences.

ERIC VLOEIMANS’ OLIVER’S CINEMA

http://www.ericvloeimans.nl/index_noscale.php?html5=y

A huge hit with promoters at the JPN annual conference in June 2017, returned to Galway in October 2018 – plus solo appearances at Dartington in August : “With Oliver’s Cinema, trumpet star Vloeimans finds himself in a chamber-ish space, working intimate, elegant, and refined music into shape with cellist Jorg Brinkmann and accordionist Tuur Florizoone. Together, these three float, fly, dance, soothe, and seduce.”
