Dutch saxophonist Benjamin Herman's fame spread
beyond jazz circles in the 1990s when he formed the groundbreaking
ensemble New Cool Collective. Benjamin longed to get to work on
something a little more intimate with one of his favorite settings; bass
and drums. This resulted in Trouble, his 16th solo work and is
a collaboration with the 24-year-old Daniel von Piekartz. "Originally,
Daniel was just going to play on two tracks. He's incredibly musical and
the ideas just kept coming. – and we just didn't feel like stopping,"
says Herman. By the end, Von Piekartz had sang and played on eight of
the ten pieces that can be found on Trouble. They tackle pieces by the likes of Fats Waller, Sly Stone, JJ Cale, Cal Tjader and Henry Mancini.
made a name as soloist while still a teenager, Benjamin Herman has
appeared on over a hundred records with all kinds of artists, from Candy
Dulfer to Misha Mengelberg. With New Cool Collective as well as with
his smaller bands, his gigs are inspired by dance floor Jazz, Surf and
Punk music, Free Jazz and traditional music from all over the world,
attracting music fans of all genres as well as straight ahead Jazz
aficionados. Today, Benjamin Herman is one of the most original and
productive jazz musicians in the Netherlands exploring influences beyond
the confines of the Jazz world.
