On June 6 (’15) the Holland Festival organized an afternoon in honor of Misha Mengelberg at the Bimhuis, celebrating  80th birthday. The speakers this afternoon were George E. Lewis, Louis Andriessen, Floris Schuiling and Kevin Whitehead, sharing personal memories and/ or presenting their researches on Misha’s Mengelberg works.
Together with Benjamin Herman, Dominic J Marshall and Tijn Jans we played songs from Misha’s repertoire in between. Visit JazzNU for a review of this afternoon at the Bimhuis.
