November 1 becomes a big party for Amsterdam trumpet player Saskia Laroo in The Concertgebouw. Not only does she present her new album Trumpets Around The World with her band, she also celebrates three anniversaries. Laroo turns 40 'stage years'-old, has run Laroo Records for 25 years and the Saskia Laroo Band has existed for 25 years.
Lady Miles Davis of Europe
The 'Lady Miles Davis of Europe' – dubbed so by the press and public in America – is one of the few women on trumpet in the international stage four decades at top level and leader of her own band for so long. She is known for her improvisational purity, music to which she's given her own twist, flavored with influences from all over the world. It is music with the mystical elusiveness of jazz improvisation, packed in modern grooves, beats, vocals and rap. Seats will be set aside on November 1st, because interaction with the audience is an important element of Laroo’s energetic live performances.
