Verenigde Staten: Winter wonder jazz + storytelling in NYC


Dear Nederlandse Nederlandse,

As 2017 is coming to an end, The Netherland Club of NY looks back at a very exciting year with many successful events. Just before the holidays, we would like to end this year together with you in a special way; a Winter Wonder Night edition of TNC JAZZ by The Philippe Lemm Trio and a storytelling (in Dutch) by award-winning Dutch writer Merijn de Boer.

The Philippe Lemm Trio, led by Dutch drummer Philippe Lemm, has proven to be one of the most electrifying jazz trios around today. They met in New York in 2011, and after one session together realized that their undeniable chemistry was one that needed to be taken and shared with the world. In January this year they already performed at TNC in the first edition of TNC JAZZ. We asked them to come play again at a special Winter Wonder Night edition of TNC JAZZ. Inspired by famous holiday songs and music, the trio will use their trust and understanding of one another's musical tendencies to create their own passionate winter wonder soundscapes.

The music will be alternated by a seasonal storytelling (in Dutch) by the award-winning Dutch writer Merijn de Boer.

During and after the concert the TNC JAZZ bar is open. We will raise our glass on a successful year and to wonderful holidays.

The Dutch writer Merijn de Boer (1982) is currently living and working in New York. In 2011 he made his debut with Nestvlieders, a collection of four short stories: Overal leegte (Everywhere emptiness), Balthasar Tak, Luchtkasteel (Air Castle) en Kraaien in de schoorsteen (Crows in the chimney). A year later De Boer received the Lucy B. en C.W. van der Hoogtprijs 2012 (litrature prize).

In 2014 he published his novel De Nacht (The Night), which was nominated for the AKO Literatuur Prijs (the Dutch Pulitzer Prize), and in 2016 't Jagthuys. De Volkskrant declared De Boer in 2015 'one of the greatest Dutch literary talents'.
