with Rembrandt Frerichs

cropped-livinghere.png

Hermine Deurloo (chromatic harmonica) and Rembrandt Frerichs (piano, prepared piano, Indian harmonium) have been performing together from 2013 onwards and have given many concerts since that time. Their new album with Brooklyn based drummer Jim Black and German cellist Jörg Brinkmann is a very unusual sound combination. The album release is in the Bimhuis at 22 dec. 2016.
They bring a mixture of exciting improvisation, strong melodies, and their own compositions.
Hermine Deurloo, inspired by Toots Thielemans, playfully turns the chromatic harmonica into a real jazz instrument. Eccentric, opinionated jazz seems to effortlessly flow out of her. Over the years, she has played together with, amongst others, The Willem Breuker Kollektief, Jesse van Ruller, Candy Dulfer, Han Bennink as well as musicians from the New York downtown jazz scene, such as Tony Scherr.

Rembrandt Frerichs is recognized by the international press as an adventurer on the piano and a master of his instrument. In his music, you can hear the energy of improvised jazz and the lyricism of Oriental music. He plays “music of the future where boundaries disappear from the ear” (Trouw, a Dutch newspaper). He’s played in the legendary Jazzclub Birdland in New York and his music has taken him to many festivals and clubs around the world. In 2014, his album was nominated for a Dutch Grammy, the Edison Award.

Jörg Brinkmann (cello, Eric Vloeimans, Fanz van Chossy) has released more then 20 records on various well known record labels. The avangarde cellist expands the boundaries of the cello in his very own way to great astounding effect.

Drummer and percussionist Jim Black has become one of the most in-demand drummers in avant-garde jazz and experimental rock since emerging as a key member of the New York downtown scene during the ’90s. Black developed a multi-tasking approach to drumming with a constant flow incorporating various objects from bells to bowls to hand drums, wowing countless live audiences and helped to bring a new generation of listeners to jazz and improvised music.

Reviews
• Jazz journalist Scott Yanow (2013): It is obvious throughout this disc that she ranks among the top jazz harmonica players of this decade.
• Bernard Lefevre, Muziekmozaiek 2013: Throughout a range of subtle accentuations, Hermine Deurloo creates a rich and varied sound in which her masterful control of the chromatic harmonica is wonderfully displayed.

Algemeen Dagblad :
Rembrandt Frerichs and Hermine Deurloo, one of the few real virtuoso harmonica artists, performed wonderfully. They surprised their audience with their brilliant impressionistic sound, with each leaving space for the other to express themselves individually.

Inge Jongerman, Pianist Magazine: The harmonica quickly calls up associations with film music. That the instrument has a broader sound palette is proven by Hermine Deurloo together with pianist Rembrandt Frerichs.

Jazzphotography Holland: The evening began with a performance by Frerichs on the piano and Deurloo on the harmonica. This duo balance each other out well because they challenge each other and provide enough room where needed to let each other excel. Beautiful improvisations, some of which were by Frerichs himself. And always again there was the excellent Deurloo with technically special playing.”
