Benjamin Herman Trouble on Limited Edition 180g Import LP + Download
Benjamin Herman is one of the most original and productive jazz musicians in the Netherlands exploring influences beyond the confines of the jazz world. 2014's Trouble is Herman's sixteenth solo work and in a new departure for the multi-talented saxophonist, his latest is a joint project with 24-year-old Daniel von Piekartz. For the first time in his career, Herman has devoted an entire album to vocal numbers. “Daniel originally planned to play on two tracks. He is incredibly musical and ideas just kept flowing...we didn’t want it to stop,” Herman recalls. Von Piekartz plays and sings on eight of the ten tracks. Includes the exclusive vinyl-only track "Autumn Serenade."
