JazzNotJazz – Dutch Jazz
Jazzdrummer Felix Schlarmann’s 50th program for Dutch online radio Concertzender Nederland focusses on the music of the Dutch National Youth Orchestra and its musical leaders.
Recently saxophone player Maarten Hogenhuis, Felix’ long-time bandmate, was announced the new leader of the national youth jazz orchestra. He is taking over from singer Ruben Hein.
During a livestream concert in April ’21 all future, current and past leaders played together with the orchestra and the band BRUUT!, since Hogenhuis is part of that group, as Felix Schlarmann is, too. The concert included Martin Fondse. Benjamin Herman, Eric Vloeimans and Anton Goudsmit.
