Trio BraamDeJoodeVatcher

Michiel Braam - Piano, Wilbert de Joode - Double bass, Michael Vatcher - Drums Trio BraamDeJoodeVatcher comprises three of the Dutch jazz scene’s most idiosyncratic musicians, for whom freedom and adventure are essential values. They all play an absolutely equal role in the music, which can go in any which way, depending on decisions made on the spot. The long musical friendship (since 1989) results in intuitive playing of the highest order. Trio BraamDeJoodeVatcher shines in short powerful pieces, honoring the jazz tradition by pushing it ahead with consummate, dazzling skill. The trio combines a playful incorporation and expansion of older forms with a great adventurousness.
The Dutch Trio were one of the special moments of the Tampere Jazz Happening, improvisations that grew and developed organically, sprightly boppish themes expanding and contracting, all without a road map. (Andrey Henkin, AAJ)

Pianist Michiel Braam is yet another superb performer who perfectly encapsulates everything that's made New Dutch Swing one of the most consistently lively and enjoyable scenes in contemporary jazz. Partnered by powerhouse bassist Wilbert de Joode and drummer extraordinaire Michael Vatcher. With these two behind him all the way it's no wonder Braam delivers some of the most confident and enjoyable piano work I've heard in recent years
