"... there's plenty of room for overflowing solos - but boredom doesn't arise, because all four musicians know how to bundle their energies purposefully."

About the album

Well over 50 CDs list him as a sideman and with a dozen he himself is a leader: Eric Vloeimans is not only the top trumpeter of Holland, but also one of the most important European. He not only masters his instrument with dreamlike confidence, from the highest notes of the register to the warm and flattering low notes, but also the whole range of musical styles. With 'Gatecrash' he has created his own interpretation of modern music, groovy and electrifying.

For trumpeter and composer Eric Vloeimans - a master of improvisation - the forms of expression of jazz are too limited. For more than 10 years he has therefore gathered an exquisite group of musicians around him: Gatecrash. The debut album, which was recorded live at the time, was immediately nominated for the Edison Award.

In January 2020 the second album of this rousing formation will be available: Party Animals with powerful solos, passionate ballads and jazz funk in its most exciting form.

Na een aantal jaren van windstilte is Gatecrash BACK. We brengen voor deze gelegenheid een dubbelcd uit met alle muziek waar de hardcore Gatecrash fans al jaren op hebben gewacht. Ocean of Petals, al verschenen met de Holland Baroque nu met een Gatecrash saus.

Ook het veelbejubelde Song for Syria, en in het meespeelboek Horn of Plenty succesvolle en dansbare Party Animals als titelstuk.

Het album bevat live opnames van een dampend live concert uit 2015 in het amsterdamse Bimhuis waarin de band zich uitleeft met dampende, rockende grooves, romantische melodieeen en alles wat daartussen ligt.

Auf weit über 50 CDs ist er als Gastmusiker vertreten und bei einem Dutzend als Leader: Eric Vloeimans ist nicht nur Hollands Toptrompeter, sondern auch einer der wichtigsten in Europa. Er meistert nicht nur sein Instrument mit traumwandlerischem Vertrauen, von der höchsten Lage zu den warmen, schmeichelnden tiefen Tönen, sondern auch die volle Bandbreite musikalischer Stile. Mit Gatecrash hat er seine eigene Interpretation moderner Musik geschaffen, groovy und elektrisierend.

Für Trompeter und Komponist Eric Vloiemans – Meister der Improvisation – sind die Ausdrucksformen des Jazz zu eingeschränkt. Seit über zehn Jahren versammelt er deshalb eine Gruppe ausgezeichneter Musiker um sich: Gatecrash. Das Debütalbum, das live aufgenommen wurde, wurde umgehend für den Edison Award nominiert.
Ende Januar 2020 wird das zweite Album dieser anregenden Formation veröffentlicht: Party Animals verspricht kraftvolle Soli, leidenschaftliche Balladen und Jazz Funk in seiner aufregendsten Form.

The album is full of musical delights that have been crystallized so well and taken care of to perfection. Quality music where teamwork and a coherent result are paramount. Just as music should be and that is enjoyment!
Music Frames, 24-2-2020

... jazz music that's "sometimes witty and absurd, sometimes romantic or funky, sometimes frantic and sometimes mean, loud and overwhelming", but often also very lyrical ...
Jazzism, 14-2-2020

... music in which intuition, spontaneous ideas and exciting interaction play such a major role.
Mania, 07-2-2020

They play great together on the new record gatecrash.
De Volkskrant, 06-2-2020

Party Animals does justice to its title with catchy music, which often makes the listener smile with pleasure.
