Jasper Somsen Invites

In 2019 Jazz in Wageningen and Loburg Live again are organizing a series of jazz concerts on Thursday evenings. With the title "Jasper Somsen invites", our own Jasper invites the best Dutch jazz musicians to play together live on the stage of Loburg. These concerts start at 20:30h and end around 22:30h. Admission is completely free and you may think "how do they fix that at Jazz in Wageningen?" Well we do it from the generous contributions of sponsors, friends and volunteers. And on these evenings you can deposit your voluntary (!) contribution in a champagne cooler on a leg that is somewhere near the exit.

Jasper Somsen

Jasper does not only live in Wageningen, but he is also a surprisingly good bass player and composer. He studied jazz and classical music at the conservatories of Utrecht and Amsterdam. He has played on many international stages and with many famous musicians including Joey Calderazzo, Enrico Pieranunzi, Bob Sheppard, Gabriele Mirabassi, John Engels, Toon Roos, Jeroen van Vliet, Yuri Honing, Rita Reys, Eric Vloeimans, Michiel Borstlap, Nancy Marano, Lori Lieberman and many more. He made 2 beautiful CDs with his Jasper Somsen Group and played on more than 20 albums in jazz, classical music or film music. In 2017 and 2018 he made beautiful albums with, among others, the French drummer André Ceccarelli and the Canadian pianist Jean-Michel Pilc. Keep an eye on him!

Benjamin Herman

Benjamin Herman's fame outside the jazz circuit came about when he founded the groundbreaking ensemble New Cool Collective in the 90s. Since he already made a name as a soloist in his teens, Benjamin Herman can be found on more than a hundred albums by very diverse artists, ranging from Candy Dulfer to Mischa Mengelberg. Today Benjamin Herman is one of the most original and productive jazz musicians in the Netherlands who regularly seeks his influences outside the boundaries of the jazz world. He won his third Edison Award for the album Campert (with beautiful lyrics spoken by poet Remco Campert himself). He plays on more than a hundred albums and gives concerts all over the world. In 2006 he received the Boy Edgar Prize.

Timothy Banchet

Timothy Banchet is an increasingly sought-after and broadly oriented musician. Jazz, classical, Suriname music, gospel: they all find their way to his keys. Banchet has worked with John Marshall, Philip Harper, Shirma Rouse and Typhoon, among others. All the more reason to listen to him on the stage of Loburg Live.
