Joachim moved to New York beginning 2009. He is currently living in Brooklyn with his girlfriend.
Joachim is part of the Han Bennink trio, the first group that the legendary Dutch drummer leads under his own name. Their record `parken` (ILK) received raving reviews world wide.
Badenhorst plays wonderfully with the same detached warmth and cool nonchalance of a young Lee Konitz - Jakob Baekgaard, All about jazz.
Over the past year or so, Belgium-born clarinetist, Joachim Badenhorst, has become the one clarinetist to watch with some half dozen discs on different labels. -Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery NY.
Badenhorst's solos are structured, focused and above all emotional.- freejazz-stef.blogspot.com
