BIM (the Professional Association of Improvising Musicians) is celebrating its 50th anniversary. For the anniversary year, the BIM board asked five band leaders to each form an intergenerational band and write new compositions. Among them trumpet player Ian Cleaver, who gathered a veritable all-star band around him for this project.

Ian Cleaver lives and studies in Amsterdam and New York. The music he wrote for the BIM50 project is a mishmash of all the different sounds and melodies he has absorbed over 25 years. Cleaver hopes that the American jazz tradition, which he has cherished since childhood, can be heard in his work. In addition, more recent new interests like Brazilian music are also reflected in his composition. 

Stay up to date with all the fun that awaits you and sign up on the Facebook Event.
