The annual Young VIPs Tour, for which Dutch jazz venues have selected national rising stars, will be represented at the Bimhuis with two concerts. The first concert, featuring the Miguel Rodriguez Quintet, will take place on Saturday 8 February. The second concert, featuring the band Windkracht 7, is on Sunday 9 February. As of March 7 both bands will be touring throughout The Netherlands.
Seven rising stars of Dutch contemporary jazz form the group Windkracht 7 (‘wind force 7’). Their whirling, cinematic music was composed by the band members themselves. The group creates a contrast between the warm sound of the wind players and the raw power of the rhythm section. At the Bimhuis the band presents its new CD Drifts.
Last summer Windkracht 7 performed at North Sea Jazz. The band was initiated by sax player Floris van der Vlugt and has a remarkable front-line with the bass clarinet of Katharina Thomsen (New Cool Collective) and the French horn of Morris Kliphuis (Kyteman Orchestra). The other band members are trumpet player Robert Scherpenisse, guitarist Reinier Baas, bassist Mark Haanstra and drummer Jamie Peet.
The Bimhuis restaurant is open prior to the concert from 6.30 til 8.30PM (reservations via 020-7882158). After the concert, the Bimhuis Café is open (free entrance).
Ticket: € 16 / € 13 (CJP, student card, stadspas)
