"Vloeimans plays crisp and self assured, embodying Clifford Brown plus many shades of Miles, without being imitative." – Jazz Times
While highly melodic and accessible, Vloeimans has a decidedly modernist approach that mixes funk and down-home blues with downtown improv, sometimes within a single tune." – All About Jazz
Amsterdam is home to one of Europe's most creative music scenes, and trumpeter Eric Vloeimans is one of its most celebrated musicians, who beautifully distills the instrument's colourful history into something personal and engaging. With Gatecrash, he augments the fluid mastery and compositional originality that has garnered four prestigious Dutch Edison Awards with a virtuoso groove band that explores subtly addictive terrain.
