Young VIP tour. 11th 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.

· A second group, winner of the Dutch Jazz Competition, is added in the program.

In this way a double bill is composed. MCN (Music Centre Netherlands) organizes the tour.


In 2009 two inventive bands were selected:

The Black Napkins

The Blazin’ Quartet


The tour started May 16 in Groningen. On May 19 the project was presented in Arnhem in De Mahlerei. Here my photo report.
