For those in the know he’s an icon and for new listeners a revelation: Tom Harrell’s trumpet sound is among the most beautiful and sophisticated ever. His precision and sense of harmony are unparalleled and his solos sound like thoughtfully composed lines.
Furthermore, he keeps on innovating. For example, Infinity is his first album with a quintet with tenor sax and guitar. At the BIMHUIS he will perform with the same musicians, including tenor saxophonist Mark Turner, who has previously played sold-out shows here with Fly.
Tom Harrell has won many awards as a trumpet and flugelhorn player, and he has also earned his place as a composer.
