Efe Erdem Pack Project 2019
This year trombonist / composer Efe Erdem was chosen. We see in him the talent to take a new course based on the challenge we offer him. Erdem is a Rotterdammer with a Turkish background and is one of the members of the Re: Freshed Orchestra, among others. With his background, Efe has led jam sessions and special compositions for many years in various places in the city, including Dizzy, BIRD and Grounds. With its quality, its sound and fusion of different styles and its story with the city, a Pack Project by his hand fits in seamlessly with the spearheads of the festival. Rotterdam has inspired and shaped him to who he is today. In our eyes, this challenge for him provides an exciting concert for the public and the development of jazz music as an art form.
