Young VIP tour. 12th edition.

Every year a tour with young talents is organized along the important venues in Holland. The initiative is from the Union of venues presenting jazz– and improvised music. VIP.  The concept is:

· Art directors from the venues propose names of young musicians deserving more attention.

· A committee (I’m sitting in for 3 years now) decides which one gets the offer to participate in a tour.

· In 2009 there was no  Dutch Jazz Competition, so the committee selected two interesting musicians
