In the Netherlands, trumpeter Eric Vloeimans is the most laudedmusician of his generation. This is not only due to his exceptionaltalent, but also definitely to his drive for innovation. Two yearsago, Vloeimans went electric with Gatecrash. With a newly recruitedband in which pianist Jeroen van Vliet is particularly excellent,and the young drummer Jasper van Hulten proves himself to be asuper talent, Vloeimans was able to do beautiful justice to hisfeel for melody. The first two albums were recorded live inRotterdam, in Theater Lantaren/Venster. In September, Gatecrash'sthird CD will be released. Response to the live performances ofthis line-up has been overwhelming and it was for good reason thatVloeimans won an Edison (Dutch Grammy Award) for this project.
