Primary Instrument: Trumpet
Eric Vloeimans (1963), born in the Netherlands, is regarded as one of Europe’s best trumpet players. He shows an extraordinary talent for playing original music with an outstanding quality. On his cd's Vloeimans prefers to record original compositions. As a composer he does not feel restricted to one particular style, but at the same time, he has managed to create a language of his own. His writing is fresh and creative, yet not without feel and respect for the tradition. The great musical talent and the expressive power of the music of Eric Vloeimans have been honoured by winning the Dutch Edison Award four times, the Boy Edgar Award, the Elly Ameling oeuvre prize and the prestigious Bird Award at the North Sea Jazz Festival....
...with the CD Bitches and Fairy-tales he firmly established his reputation... Vloeimans seeks the same virtue in his music as Raymond Chandler does in literature: 'to acquire delicacy without losing the power. --Bert Vuijsje, HP/De Tijd (Dutch weekly opinion magazine)
Trumpeter Eric Vloeimans is ranked as one of the undisputed giants within the Dutch jazz establishment. Coupled with his beautiful sonority and controlled musical dynamics, his open and crystal-clear phrasings are comparable to the likes of Wynton Marsalis. --Luc Baets (Het Nieuwsblad Flemish newspaper)
