No rational person would ever become a musician.
I love dreaming. When I was ten I told everyone I would become a musician. Since my teens with every band or musician I would admire, I would dream to play with them.
Being a musician is harder then the dreams I used to have, true! But let’s face it: some of those dreams actually do come true! Nowadays I do get to play with incredible musicians, like the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw, with whom I performed at the Bimhuis and at the Java Jazz Festival recently. Speaking of Java Jazz: how much fun those jam sessions were! Saxofonists James Carter, Justin Robinson and Jason Marshall, trumpet players Roy Hargrove and Maurice Brown, pianist Eldar, drummer Quincy Phillips…. to only name a few!
