Dutch trumpeter Eric Vloeimans, one of Europe's best, prefers recording originals on his many award winning CD's although he can also be heard performing others. Vloeimans started in classical music but got sucked into jazz and later, graduated with distinction in 1988. He continued his studies in New York under Donald Bryd and gained experience with the big bands of Frank Foster and Mercer Ellington. This multi-award winner has played with jazz figures from Holland, the US, Germany and quite a few others (e.g. Michiel Borstlap, John Taylor, Marc Johnson, Nguyen Le, Lars Danielson and Jimmy Haslip).

 

His quartet, Gatecrash, inspires visions of breaking boundaries and crashing through barricades with reckless abandon. Their electronic sound, infused with delicious Fender Rhodes textures and effects, is captivating as Vloeimans’ trumpet provides companionship through it all.


 

“Vloeimans plays crisp and self-assured, embodying the articulate melodism of Clifford Brown plus many shades of Miles, without being imitative” -- JazzTimes

 

“An accomplished storyteller, Vloeimans refuses to restrict himself to any 'Particular melodic format or sonic texture.’” --Ernest Barteldes, Miami New Times
