Paul van der Feen
Paul van der Feen is considered one of the Netherlands' leading saxophonists. As a member of the Metropole Orchestra he played with countless stars such as Chaka Khan, Herbie Hancock, Elvis Costello, Gregory Porter,
Al Jarreau and John Scofield and participated as a soloist on several Grammy Award winning albums. After his conservatory studies in Amsterdam and New York, Paul explored different music styles such as jazz, funk, fusion, hip-hop and classical. His versatility gives him great musical freedom, making playing popular with colleagues and audiences.
After his classical piano studies in The Hague, Hans Vroomans belonged to the first group to graduate in the Netherlands at a Jazz department (Rotterdam). He then moved to New York for five years. He studied there at New York University and performed with Randy Brecker and Eddie Daniels, among others. On his return to the Netherlands he became the regular pianist of the Metropole Orkest, with which
he won a Grammy Award and collaborated with the likes of Ivan Lins, John Scofield, Al Jarreau, Vince Mendoza and Kurt Elling. In addition to being a much sought-after pianist for studio sessions and with the major German radio orchestras, he is known for his collaborations with Paul van Vliet (UNICEF) and Trijntje Oosterhuis.
