Michiel Braam

As a pianist Michiel Braam combines exceptional virtuosity with a playful unpredictability. Braam’s infectious dynamic and percussive style is strictly his own. In his role as composer and bandleader Michiel Braam attempts to apply his open playing style to bigger ensembles. He is constantly looking for greater musical freedom. His Trio BraamDeJoodeVatcher has little in common with the traditional piano trio. The musicians are totally equal: bass player and drummer have just as much influence on the direction of the improvisations as the pianist. The 13 piece Bik Bent Braam--for whom Braam is always writing new material--can scarcely be compared with a conventional big band

Read "Save the Date - Maggio 2015" reviewed by Luca Canini

Maggio, tempo di festival. Concerti e rassegne da un angolo all'altro dello Stivale. Piazze piene, cortili aperti, giardini sonanti: non c'è che da scegliere. In base ai gusti, alle distanze e agli impegni. Dal canto nostro, come ogni mese, ci permettiamo di caldeggiare le proposte più allettanti e fuori dagli schemi, lasciando da parte i cartelloni ...

Flex Bent Braam: Lucebert

Read "Lucebert" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Lucebert fu pittore e poeta olandese, particolarmente influenzato dal movimento d'avanguardia denominato Cobra, oltre che grande appassionato di jazz. Da un suo telegramma, il cui contenuto consisteva in una semplice lista di standard, prende spunto l'idea di questo album nel quale agli otto brani noti il leader Michiel Braam affianca altrettante composizioni originali. ...

Flex Bent Braam: Lucebert

Read "Flex Bent Braam: Lucebert" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The new group of Dutch pianist Michiel Braam, the 8-piece Flex Bent Braam, is a scaled-down continuation of Braam's 13-piece Bik Bent Braam, one of Braam's main projects in the last twenty five years, a group that evolved from traditional big band to a flexible improvising unit, but it is also an attempt to challenge his ...

eBraam: 3

Read "3" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il vulcanico tastierista olandese Michiel Braam si esprime con diverse formazioni (proprie o collettive, di pura improvvisazione o dedite alla più organica composizione), ma sempre con inalterata e fervida inventiva, con una propensione per le espressioni eccentriche e frenetiche, per un astruso sensazionalismo degli effetti sonori. Il gruppo eBraam rappresenta l'evoluzione del precedente Wurli Trio e ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
