It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to state that Eric Vloeimans is one of the best, if not the best, trumpet player of our country. He excels with his intuitive way of playing and his beautiful velvety tone. By means of his instrument he tells little stories, or, to quote him, “soundscapes of life”, in which he always looks for adventure in order to enthrall the listener – restrained and accentuated, full of variations and always room for a quirky note. On their Summersault CD The Fugimundi Trio - without bass and drums, but with guitarist Anton Goudsmit and pianist Harmen Fraanje – almost exclusively play Vloeimans’ originals, each and every one with a personal atmosphere. Vloeimans and Fraanje meet in beautiful melodies, while Goudsmit counter-balances the music with rebellious guitar notes. The trumpeter, who was awarded the important Boy Edgar Prize and the Bird Award ‘Artist Deserving Wider Recognition', recently played the Dutch theater-circuit with the Rotterdam based dance company Conny Janssen Danst with the ballet Hear Me (City and Sound).
