Musical loves come together
Benjamin Herman is widely regarded as one of the most influential, original and prolific jazz musicians in the Netherlands. His latest project, Benjamin Herman’s Bughouse, founded in 2018 to celebrate his fiftieth birthday, is the latest testament to this. Together with musicians from the punk/hardcore scene, he explores a fusion of his music loves; jazz and punk. The project is inspired by Herman’s personal, musical heroes, including Xero Slingsby, John Lurie and James Chance.
