Add to Calendar 2017-11-02 20:30 2017-11-02 Bassdrumbone at Bimhuis For 40 years they have been developing their fascinating combination of jazz and chamber music: trombonist Ray Anderson, double bassist Mark Helias and percussionist Gerry Hemingway. ‘Exceptionally good’ (Cadence).

Trombone, double bass and drums: it remains an unusual combination, but which BassDrumBone uses to create endlessly fascinating music. The three band members improvise with superb ease and joy. Trombone player Ray Anderson, double bassist Mark Helias and drummer Gerry Hemingway celebrate the 40th anniversary of their curious combination of jazz and chamber music. The recent double album The Long Road is considered as a highlight in the group’s renowned discography.

‘In this trio without piano, bassist Mark Helias minds the structures, plays little background melodies and brings a springy swing to the rhythm. It’s great to hear the interactive drummer Gerry Hemingway react to and provoke trombonist Ray Anderson. They know each other’s timing. Ray Anderson gets a lot of the human voice into his trombone sound - a talking, throat-clearing, guttural sound that harks back to jazz’s rude beginnings’ (NPR, Kevin Whitehead).

‘Exceptionally good music, fearlessly played and tightly coordinated’ (Cadence).
