Erik Verwey Trio
Dutch Jazz heavyweights Erik Verwey (along with his trio) and Hermine Deurloo come together to record a top-level jazz album, recorded in great quality.
After graduating from the Conservatories of Utrecht (bachelor) and The Hague (master), Amsterdam-based pianist Erik Verwey (1987) worked for many years as a composer and accompanist of various successful theater and cabaret programs. However, in addition to his musical activities in the theatre world, Erik had a great urge, or rather a musical necessity, to write and play his own music. Collaborating with the Erik Verwey Trio on their next album is Hermine Deurloo. Deurloo’s style on the chromatic harmonica is characterized as being rich, lyrical, and varied, combined with effortless fluency. Hermine studied saxophone at the Amsterdam Conservatory while, at the same time, teaching herself to play the harmonica. She’s recorded and performed all over the world and with musicians such as Steve Gadd, Jim Black, Tony Scherr, Al Jarreau, and the Metropole Orkest. She recorded albums with Rembrandt Frerichs, Steve Gadd and Mike Boddé.
