Musician

Michiel Braam

Born:

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. ...

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 ...
