Harmen Fraanje on piano at Tulas Sunday night with Eric Vloeimans Fugimundi.
One of Europe’s most gifted trumpeters, the Dutchman performed Sunday night at Tula’s with his wonderful trio Fugimundi, featuring Anton Goudsmit who was astounding on guitar and Harmen Fraanje on piano. They ranged from cutting-edge jazz to hymns all presented with virtuosity, warmth, and wit. What a really special treat, one of my favorite performances so far on the second night of the 2008 Earshot Jazz Festival.
