Program – BIMHUIS Amsterdam

Jazz en Improvisatie podium Amsterdam
  • Mathias Eick

    Mathias Eick’s trumpet playing immediately catches the ear, with clear, often melancholic melody lines like ‘streaks of light in the darkness’ (JazzTimes).

The Norwegian group celebrates international success with […]

  • James Carter Organ Trio

    When saxophone player James Carter (Detroit, 1969) released his debut album JC on the Set in 1993, the American jazz community was shaken.
