Licks & Brains With Eric Vloeimans at Bimhuis
Famous Dutch trumpeter Eric Vloeimans is the special guest with soul/funk/jazz big band Licks & Brains, playing new versions of his original music and more.
Licks & Brains plays contemporary big band jazz with a healthy dose of soul, funk and dance, and with a full brass line-up. The band has already collaborated with named performers such as Benjamin Herman, Joseph Bowie (Defunkt) and remixers Kraak & Smaak. Now the band welcomes the most famous Dutch trumpeter of the moment, Eric Vloeimans. His compositions have been arranged especially for Licks & Brains. He will also perform on tracks from the repertory of the big band, which is led by saxophonist, conductor and arranger Rolf Delfos.
‘Vloeimans plays crisp and self-assured, embodying the articulate melodicism of Clifford Brown plus many shades of Miles, without being imitative’ (JazzTimes).
