Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Dutch trumpeter Gerard Kleijn's band is a mixed batch. Apart from the leader himself and drummer Joost Kesselaar the other members are from the United States Sweden and France. That results in an energetic, innovating melting-pot of sound and colourful phrases.The group has released three CD's so far: Big Moves (with Fay Claassen), Love Quotes and New World (both with the Israelian guitar player David Golek), which were all well received in various music publications. The last two CD's Love Quotes and New World got over 100 positive international reviews! The swinging, dreamlike interpretations of Kleijn himself are praised in particular. The group plays all over Europe at Jazz clubs and festivals. The group has played at the North Sea Jazzfestival (Netherlands), The Villa Cellimonata Jazzfestival (Italy), The Brianza Open Festival (Italy), The Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), Bimhuis (Amsterdam),The Birds Eye (Switzerland), The Music Village (Brussels), Amici della Music (Italy),and Jazzstudio (Nurnberg) among many other venues....
