Benjamin Herman is a widely known saxophonist, leader of the New Cool Collective and a Dutch jazz icon, always fresh-spirited and sharply dressed. His 50th birthday party at the BIMHUIS was all about his latest album, Project S.

Project S was written for the eponymous documentary about the Citroën SM, the legendary car used by Presidents and celebrities, including Dutch soccer superstar Johan Cruijff. A Citroën with a Maserati motor, which is a way to describe the album's sound. "Serge Gainsbourg meets Fausto Papetti," according to Benjamin Herman.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
