Eric Vloeimans | Kinan Azmeh | Jeroen van Vliet - Levanter (CHALLENGE RECORDS 2018)

Levanter is the new album by trumpet player Eric Vloeimans.  The title references the warm, strong, eastern wind that regularly blows accross southern Europe.

Eric invited the Syrian clarinet viruoso Kinan Azmeh for this project, whom he had met some years back on an "Imagining Europe" collaboration.  Jeroen van Vliet, Boy Edgar winner of 2014, with whom Eric has been performing for more than twenty years, is the pianist who caresses the keys.

This trio will take you along on a musical adventure, flying on a magic carpet of sound, a journey accross the borders of jazz, classical and world music.  Hop on and  be transported on the warm billows of Levanter.
