Bik Bent Braam is a 13-piece improvising 'big band' from the Netherlands, led by pianist/composer Michiel Braam. Bik Bent Braam performs without a setlist - it employs a strategy in which the musicians all provide input, calling out tunes in mid-phrase and deciding tempo and instrumentation, to generate a new musical direction for the ensemble. Compelling themes, echoing jazz history, and precise ensemble work alternate with wild, screaming improvisations. Michiel Braam writes his material with his musicians in mind, thus getting the best out of each orchestra member.
