For the past 25 years saxophonist and musical omnivore Benjamin Herman has been one of Holland’s most productive musicians of his generation. After taking part in the 1991 Thelonious Monk Competition and studying with Dick Oatts in New York, to date Benjamin has released over 50 albums as a solo artist and as front man of his groove orientated eight-piece ensemble New Cool Collective.

His solo work varies from postmodern interpretations of classic Dutch avant-garde with drum icon Han Bennink and enfant terrible Misha Mengelberg to collaborations with Dutch poets, pop singers and hip hop artists. Aside from left field punk jazz projects like Bughouse and The Itch his recording projects have ventured into lush seventies Creed Taylor inspired productions (Deal, Project S) and pleasantly understated renditions of classic evergreens (Trouble, Café Solo).

Benjamin’s quest for a personal and highly recognizable sound on the alto saxophone has gone into a new phase since the start of the 2020 pandemic. Having lots of time to practice and experiment his scope has broadened considerably. The Benjamin Herman Trio’s live performances are characterized by its eclectic repertoire, cherry picking the best material from Benjamin’s vast back catalogue. Timeless classics, guilty pleasures and delightful virtuosity, their gigs are never boring.

Tickets are available for 2500 HUF on the spot, online at, and at InterTicket Jegypont partners across Hungary.
