“That journey reads like a diary,” says Oscar Jan Hoogland. “This music shaped our scene – and me personally.” The band passes by great jazz heroes, South African music, ICP and Misha Mengelberg, New Dutch Swing, New Cool Collective, The Ex, Ethiopian music, electronic music, conduction, free impro and the youngest group of musicians.

During this festive evening the band performs in different formations, to reflect the diversity of the Bimhuis history. In addition to Oscar Jan Hoogland, the group consists of Benjamin Herman (New Cool Collective), Tobias Delius, David Kweksilber, Felicity Provan, Mola Sylla, Laura Polence, Andy Moor (The Ex), Ernst Glerum (ICP Orchestra) and Gerri Jäger.
