HOT (Het Orgel Trio)

2013 Steven Kamperman

Though jazz music is heavily indebted to the church soul tradition, jazz on the organ in the church is still rather an exception. HOT prooves it can be done, and how!

In the hands of Berry van Berkum, the impressive sound machine with all its heavy basses and clear trumpets grines, hauls and thunders. Jazz classics of Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker get a most surprising twist. Old music at its turn transforms into sizzling improvisations with alto clarinet pioneer Steven Kamperman and jazz bassist Dion Nijland.

Highly unconventional, HOT (Het Orgel Trio) brings jazz to all the corners of the church.

• Steven Kamperman – alto clarinet, soprano saxophone • Dion Nijland – bass • Berry van Berkum – organ
