”[Badenhorst] combines a never-ending search for adventure, a natural direction and a warm tone into an interesting and personal story.... A wonderful storyteller...” - Knack Magazine (Belgium)

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

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
