Presented by Projazz and PAARD

The Netherlands most famous trumpet player Eric Vloeimans invites bigband Licks & Brains for a concert with dazzling new versions of his own compositions. The impressive repertoire of Licks & Brains will, ofcourse, not be left out. The 18-headed band makes an attractive danceable mix of jazz put in a blender with a big dash of soul, funk and dance: this bigbands year is 2018 and they’ve already worked together with Benjamin Herman, Joseph Bowie and Kraak & Smaak.

The compositions of master trumpet player Vloeimand are put in a new wrapping by the bigband: bombastic and swinging is how it will sound. This makes the atmosphere and energy around the 55-year old trumpet player’s music completely new. The men of Licks & Brains are over the moon with this collaboration: ”With the pieces of Vloeimans we explore new musical paths that other big bands don’t dare to walk.”

Die lijnen pasten elkaar als het patroon van een complexe Noorse trui. Dat leidde tot een ideale versmelting.
