HOT (Het Orgel Trio)
Though jazz music is heavily indebted to the church soul tradition, jazz on the organ in the church is still rather an exception. HOT proves it can be done, and how! Jazz classics of Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker get a most surprising twist. Old music by Dutch composer and organ player Sweelinck at its turn transforms into sizzling improvisations. Together with the impassioned clarinet player Steven Kamperman and the versatile Dion Nijland on bass, Berry van Berkum makes the pipe organ thunder, groan and vibrate with HOT air. And as always, the trio takes the audience along on a journey throughout the building.
Berry van Berkum – pipe organ
Dion Nijland – double bass
Steven Kamperman – clarinet & alto clarinet
