Saxophonist Benjamin Herman is one of the most prominent saxophonists on the Dutch jazz scene. In the 1990s, with New Cool Collective, he blew the dust off classical jazz and made a danceable plea for groove jazz. An international career followed, in which Herman's characteristic, clear playing always remained central to his collaborations. For his most recent album, Nostalgia Blitz, Herman returned to the inspirations of his (British) youth: saxophonists such as James Chance and John Lurie, who moved far away from jazz orthodoxy towards post-wave and 'car crash jazz'. '. With this repertoire he also pays tribute to punk poet John Cooper Clarke and Jules Deelder.
