A podcast by radio and theatre maker Chris Bajema, a.k.a. The Man with the Microphone, is produced on stage, with a live soundtrack by the Konrad Koselleck Big Band.
Chris Bajema is the pioneer of podcasts in The Netherlands. After years of making documentaries and radio plays for broadcasting companies he finally took the step to create programs on his own. As the Man with the Microphone, traveling in an orange Ford Transit bus, he aims to discover beautiful stories. Additionally, he records scenes with, among others, actors Cecile Heuer, Leopold Witte, Marcel Hensema, Bert Kommerij and Diederik Ebbinge. Paulien Cornelisse writes a telephone dialogue for every episode.
The music of the Konrad Koselleck Big Band unites people. The leading orchestra offers its audience inspiring, adventurous and groundbreaking concerts with artistic, emotional and social relevance. With music as a connector, the big band aims to reach different audiences and cultures.

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!
