On 13 May he will celebrate his 50th birthday at the BIMHUIS: alto saxophonist Benjamin Herman, one of the best known and best dressed jazz musicians in The Netherlands. After spending valuable time in New York he founded the New Cool Collective in 1994, a jazz group that continues to celebrate success. At the BIMHUIS he will present his new album Project S, which was made for the eponymous documentary about the legendary Citroën SM. Additionally, he will revisit his albums Blue Sky Blond and Deal. Benjamin recommends also the following concerts:
Fr May 4 – Pascal Schumacher feat. Maxime Delpierre
Beautiful electronic music. With a light show, that is quite unusual for the BIMHUIS…!
Sa May 5 – BvR Flamenco Big Band
Bernard van Rossum and his big band are unique in this genre. Flamenco but not as we know it…
Thu May 24 – Kaja Draksler Octet
Quirky virtuoso pianist who keeps on developing. Adventurous music with a top line up.
Th May 31 – Larry Goldings/Peter Bernstein/Bill Stewart
Best classic organ trio of the world!
