Benjamin Herman - Alto Saxophonist - At the age of twelve, Herman started playing the saxophone. At thirteen, he was already performing on the professional club circuit. Within a few years, Benjamin had played all over the world with various groups and initiated his own projects. When he was seventeen, Herman played for the first time at the North Sea Jazz Festival.
Herman studied at the Hilversum Conservatory, from which he graduated cum laude in 1991. In that year, he was the only European selected for the Thelonious Monk Competition. He also studied at the Manhattan School of Music in New York.
In 1993, Herman founded New Cool Collective, an eight-piece band with influences from jazz, soul and Latin music. He composes the music for this band, as well as the bigger New Cool Collective Big Band, and is also the leader of both. #jazz#newcoolcollective#herman#benjaminherman#saxophone#music#sketchbook#coffee#hat#volkskrant#interpretation#alto#illustration
