VERA MARIJT TRIO

Vera was drawn to the piano from an early age, spending hours as a kid listening to Nat King Cole, Diana Krall and Oscar Peterson. She pursued her master degree in Jazz Piano at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague and continued her studies at McGill University of Music in Montréal. It was here that she recorded her debut album “Insight Out”, which has taken her to stages in Canada, Mexico, Switzerland, Germany and France.

Vera leads the Amsterdam-based Vera Marijt Trio, consisting of long-time collaborators Richie Reichgelt (guitar) and Luciano Poli (double bass). The trio performs original compositions as well as arrangements from existing tunes, such as old Dutch songs and the jazz classics.

The heavily swinging Vera Marijt Trio pays respect to the straight-ahead jazz tradition while adding new and spirited ideas that keep the music fresh and unpredictable. It’ll be perfect afternoons on Saturday May 30 and Sunday May 31 in the lobby of the NH Collection Barbizon Palace Hotel, for jazz afficionados and for the interested novice.
