about

Dox 062

In 2008 Benjamin Herman released Hypochristmastreefuzz (More Mengelberg). Herman found yet another direction by recording compositions by Misha Mengelberg, the godfather of the Dutch improvisation scene. In addition to his trio, featuring bass veteran Ernst Glerum and Joost Patocka, the drummer of Rita Reys (officially Europe’s First Lady of Jazz), the album includes philicorda, mellotron, the velvet voice of Ruben Hein (young and talented jazz singer), a children’s choir and Dutch guitar hero Anton Goudsmit.

Hypochristmastreefuzz is a timeless and joyful album. Herman: “in 2001 I released a live album together with Misha. Just like then I have tried to interpret his music in my own way. His work is so well composed, that interpretations of any kind are possible. And as with all big composers in jazz, one’s personality is always recognisable in his music, no matter what you do with it.”
