Ben van den Dungen
He has been in the jazz scene for some years. He made so far 80 albums and played around 5000 concerts in 70 countries. Mostly he is known from the European most famous Latin-Jazz formation; “Nueva Manteca”. Also he is proffesor at the Jazz department of the academy of music in Rotterdam, ‘Codarts’.
Art Blakey once said that Jazz has to be “danceable and have the Blues” and in many ways this could be Ben van den Dungen’s musical motto for his new quartet. This group contains a special combination of musical personality’s what makes this band so undeniably 100% pure Jazz. Nothing pretentious, just swinging, right up to date and with a “happy feel”. These characteristics makes this band so undeniably 100% pure Jazz. Their first album “Ciao City” was released in 2013. ‘A Night At The Club’, their second album, was recorded live in Café Central in Madrid in May 2014 and released in the same year. In 2016, Ben van den Dungen went on a Dutch theatre tour with the new program ‘Blue Note”. After a tour through Argentina in 2017, Ben recorded his third album 2 Sessions.
