Jazz on organ? HOT (Het Orgel Trio) proves it can be done! Together with the impassioned clarinet player Steven Kamperman and the versatile Dion Nijland on bass, Berry van Berkum makes the pipe organ thunder, groan and vibrate with HOT air. The trio takes the audience along on a journey throughout the church. Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker was arguably the biggest genius of 20th century jazz. His harmonic ideas also proved such a coherent and closed building that the next generation preferred to stay out of it entirely. In 2015, some sixty years after his death, HOT decided to look how much space they could still find in Bird’s music. And where better to do that than in the miraculous acoustics of the spacious 12th century Nicolaï church in Utrecht, with six beautiful seconds of reverb. And of course on the instrument that has the strongest link to the building: the pipe organ, with its endless sound possibilities.
