VANBINSBERGEN PLAYSTATION is a playful, colorful small big band. The music is an extremely agreeable and happy amalgam of suspenseful antitheses. The band consists of highly acclaimed musicians at the forefront of the vibrant Dutch Jazz scene. Both the press and public are super enthusiastic. Like a fan on Facebook reacted: This is the most incredible music. Bebop with a modern twist, I am an instant fan!

Female leader of the band Corrie Van Binsbergen is one of Holland’s most original guitar players. In 1999 she received the Boy Edgar Prize, the most prestigious award in Dutch jazz and improvised music. The band has played at several venues, such as the Amsterdam Bimhuis and at festivals like North Sea Jazz 2016. Their first album LIVE was nominated for the Edison Publieksprijs (Edison Audience Award – the Edison is the Dutch equivalent of the Grammy) 2016. In spring 2017 they launched their second concept album Tales Without Words.

• Van Binsbergen compositions are concise and engaging, cleverly arranged and employ fully the octet flowing energy as a small big band. (Salt Peanuts, September 2016)

• The monumental pieces bandleader Corrie van Binsbergen wrote for this impressive band all had something of the grandeur Duke Ellington. (JazzNu, February 2016)

• Being at the center of the Dutch jazz scene she again managed to create something extraordinary, which again strengthens her position considerably. (Jan Jasper Tamboer, 2015)
