Dutch jazz trio touches down at Frick Fine Arts 6/20

Frick Fine Arts Auditorium, University of Pittsburgh, Oakland

TRIO BRAAM DEJOODE VATCHER
Michiel Braam – piano
Wilbert DeJoode – double bass
Michael Vatcher – drums

Trio Braam DeJoode Vatcher comprises three of the Dutch jazz scene’s most idiosyncratic musicians, for whom freedom and adventure are essential values. They all play an absolutely equal role in the music, which can go in any direction depending on decisions made on the spot. Their long musical friendship results in intuitive playing of the highest order. The trio shines in short powerful pieces written by Michiel Braam, and combines a playful incorporation and expansion of older forms with forward-thinking innovation.

“Pianist Michiel Braam is yet another superb performer who perfectly encapsulates everything that’s made New
Dutch Swing one of the most consistently lively and enjoyable scenes in contemporary jazz.”
-Dan Warburton, Paris Transatlantic

“The trio has one of the most integrated sounds I’ve heard from any such grouping. They travel the continuum
from Trad to Free with ease and dexterity. This one’s for lovers and haters of the piano trio alike.”
-Marc Medwin, Cadence Magazine
