Ruben Drenth trumpet * Joost Buis trombone * Steven Kamperman alto clarinet, soprano sax * Dion Nijland double bass * Berry van Berkum church organ
Bandleader Steven Kamperman can boast of numerous attractive projects. He recently wrote a real opera, for instance. A regular guest at the ZJFT, we’re familiar with his preference for imaginary folk music. For Het Orgel Trio, HOT&BRASS he’s delved into a completely different musical world, inspired by the great Duke Ellington. With a church organ and two brass instruments in the line-up, both Duke Ellington's early (pre-1930) and late works (post-1965) will be performed. Thus, a classic like Rockin ’in Rhythm will be featured, but also Come Sunday or Heaven (from his Sacred Concerts).
Jasper Blom tenor sax * Sean Frasciani double bass * Felix Schlarmann drums
Blom’s threesome base their improvisations on the music of Stevie Wonder and in their programme WonderYears they pay homage to one of the most creative songwriters of the 20th century. It’s surprising to hear how Stevie Wonder’s funky grooves and catchy harmonies lend themselves to new jazz improvisations. The musical themes that everyone grew up with will pop up at the most unexpected moments. Drummer Felix Schlarmann is best known for his work with the organ jazz band Bruut. And Jasper Blom was the winner of the Buma Boy Edgar Prijs 2019, the major Dutch jazz award.
Efraim Trujillo tenor sax * Rob Mosterd hammond organ * Chris Strik drums
The Preacher Men is powered by the sound of the mighty Hammond B3 and the dirty tenor sax of Efraim Trujillo, head preacher of this boisterous threesome. He is best known for his work with the Ploctones and the New Cool Collective Big Band. The powerful Hammond organ trio recipe brings to life the pleasant side of jazz and blues. A firm shot of soul jazz is added to the mixture. The resulting hot organ mix gained them the audience award at the 2019 Edisons (the Dutch Grammys).
Ad Colen tenor sax, soprano sax * Mike Roelofs keyboards, piano Rogier Hornman cello * Dion Nijland double bass * Yonga Sun drums
Saxophonist Ad Colen studies bird sounds, notates them and uses them to write new compositions. When a birdsong is slowed down, it develops into completely new sounds and melodies. The hermit thrush, for instance, hides a beautiful lyrical line in his chattering. And the wren’s song resembles a contemporary classical melodic line. And just like the melody of a jazz standard may be the guideline for an improvisation, the rhythms, melodies and sounds of birds may provide one, too. The band’s album, A BIRDS’ EYE VIEW is, according to newspaper NRC: 'A beautiful homage to birdsong’.
* Programme subject to change
The green route takes you from Aduard, via Den Ham and Feerwerd to Sauwerd (15.5 kilometres).
From Duke Ellington to Stevie Wonder is just a short cycling distance at the ZJFT 2021. The Aduard monastery church is the starting point for Duke Ellington’s harmonies, performed by Het Orgel Trio & Brass. To the north of Den Ham, the Huizinga family’s barn welcomes Jasper Blom’s trio WonderYears. Then it’s on to Hans’s barn in Feerwerd for The Preacher Men’s meaty Hammond B3 organ sound. And this route will finally take you to Sauwerd, where the Ad Colen Quintet will provide a joyful dose of birdsong at the Onstaheerd.

All dishes are prepared with care and attention by students and master chefs of ‘het Spijslokaal’.
