The BIMHUIS is widely considered by fans and musicians alike to be one of the most important venues for jazz and improvised music in the world. Branford Marsalis, declared it ‘One of the two or three best clubs in the world.’ What’s more, crowd-pullers such as Brad Mehldau, John Scofield, Joshua Redman and Archie Shepp were performing here long before they became the stars that they are today, and the BIMHUIS remains a strong advocate for new talent.
