Eric Vloeimans Trio: Fugimundi

Stand-out Dutch Jazz Trumpeter's U.S. Debut Tour

Regarded as one of Europe's best performers, chill and playful, Eric Vloeimans' trumpet playing captures the full range of the instrument, from brassy high notes to a reedy lower register, while his original compositions create an evocative, harmonic language of their own. With technique to spare, this disciplined acoustic trio includes Vloeimans, Anton Gooudsmit (guitar) and Harmen Fraanje (piano). "Our goal, as always, is to showcase the best of global culture here in Miami, and this concert fits right in with that vision," says Tigertail Executive Director Mary Luft. "Jazz is a uniquely American idiom, but it also flourishes in Europe, where musicians like Vloeimans are highly regarded." Eric Vloeimans has won numerous awards for his music, including the Dutch Edison Award four times and the prestigious Bird Award at the North Sea Jazz Festival.

"Vloeimans' open and crystal-clear phrasings are comparable to the likes of Wynton Marsalis." – Flemish newspaper Het Nieuwsblad
