CHASIN' THE BIRD
BENJAMIN HERMAN, JOHN MARSHALL, GARY SMULYAN & REIN DE GRAAFF TRIO
Benjamin Herman altsax, Gary Smulyan baritonsax, John Marshall trompet, Rein de Graaff piano, Marius Beets bas, Eric Ineke drums
Tribute to Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker, featuring alto saxophonist Benjamin Herman, trumpeter John Marshall, baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan (Downbeat Critics Poll winner) and the Rein de Graaff Trio.
Pianist Rein de Graaff has brought over jazz heroes from the States to the Netherlands for decades now. The bebop of alto sax legend Charlie Parker has always been an important factor in his career. For example, in 1982 he recorded the album Chasin’ the Bird, on which he performs Parker’s music with his piano trio. At the Bimhuis he once again pays tribute to ‘Bird’ together with alto saxophonist Benjamin Herman in the Parker role and two special guests from the US: trumpeter John Marshall and Gary Smulyan, multiple winner of the Downbeat Critics Poll in the best baritone saxophone category.
The Bimhuis restaurant is open prior to the concert from 6.30 till 8.30PM (reservations via 020-7882158). After the concert, the Bimhuis Café is open (free entrance).
Ticket: € 22 seating / € 18 standing
