With festivals like the North Sea in Rotterdam and Amersfoort, and venues such as the Bimhaus in Amsterdam, Holland is one of the most important countries on the European jazz scene. It’s hardly surprising, then, that dozens of our own musicians have learned their trade in its music schools. The Biannual Dutch Jazz Competition is an example of this dynamic trend, and also of the excellence of the new generations in jazz. For the first time in its history, the Jamboree has the honour of welcoming the winning line-up from the most recent competition – the 2020 contest, postponed to this year due to the pandemic. Jazz musicians who are already beginning to stand out play at the basement club in Plaça Reial.
