After a tremendous successful edition last year, ProJazz has decided to again host the Cutting Edge Jazzfestival in theatre De Nieuwe Regentes. This year’s headliner is Chris Potter (sax) Trio ft. Reuben Rogers (bass) & Eric Harland (drums).
Chris Potter is known for his projects with jazz giants, such as Ray Brown, Paul Motian, James Moody, Kenny Werner, de Mingus Big Band en Dave Holland. But he doesn’t shy away from pop projects either, as his world tour with the world-famous pop duo Steely Dan demonstrated.
Besides this great headliner, Cutting Edge this year features a variety of national and international jazz acts, among others Vitopol, a young international jazz quartet, Marzio Scholten solo guitar, the Greyheads, a seven-man strong international electronic, hip-hop and jazz group from Rotterdam and much more! Besides music, there is a photo exhibition of jazz photographer Maurits van Hout and a film documentary, ‘Chasing Trane’, on the life and work of the ever-influential saxophonist John Coltrane. DJ Jazz Min Lau will provide tunes to dance to.
