EUJazz Night III: Marc Huynen, Mike Roelofs & Trillmann

The Maastricht region is bursting with jazz talent. Twice a year we select the top jazz bands in the region to perform in AINSI during our mini-festival; EUJazz Night. This edition we’re happy to present Mike Roelofs (NL), Trillmann (DE) and the Marc Huynen Quintet (NL)!

Mike Roelofs (SOLO)
A self-described audio adventurer, pianist Mike Roelofs is well known in Limburg as a skilled improviser who regularly collaborates with some of the top artists on the Dutch jazz scene. He’ll be playing impressionistic music from his latest album ‘Leaving the Valley of the Shadow’.

Featuring four of the best young jazz musicians in Germany, Trillmann was formed in New York. Even though the quartet members have all won a number of awards (including drummer Eva Klesse who won Germany’s most important jazz prize – the Echo Jazz Newcomer, and Florian Herzog who won the Maastricht Jazz Awards Professional prize) their style is minimalistic, with subtle interactions, allowing the music to speak for itself.


Fabian Willmann – saxofoon, Janning Trumann – trombone, Eva Klesse – drums, Florian Herzog – contrabass.

Trumpetist Marc Huynen brings a selection of Limburg’s finest jazz to perform works from his latest CD ‘Sad Songs and Groovy Tunes’. Marc Huynen is an institution in Limburg, he studied in the Maastricht and Hilversum Conservatoria under Rob Bruynen, Jan Oosthof and Ruud Breuls. He’s performed, amongst others, with the Glen Miller Orchestra and the WDR Big Band and has accompanied artists such as Toot Thielemans and Rowen Heze. To top it off, he’s the co-founder and musical director of the Mo’Jones Big Band.
