NEWS UPDATE Jarmo Hoogendijk September 2010
I have not performed anymore since early 2004 due to problems of the facial muscles. In November 2004 I underwent lip muscle surgery with dr.McGrail in Toronto but it did not help.
In the meantime I have expanded my activities as a teacher, mentor/coach and research supervisor (Codarts Rotterdam Jazz Academy and Royal Conservatoire in the Hague) and I’m also having a great time listening to classical music and visiting concerts.
Both Cd’s I recorded for A-Records with the latin jazz quintet Bye-Ya (my last recordings and also best playing in studio) are available on I-tunes. And fortunately Bye-Ya has kept being active since I stopped playing, performing now with great young trumpeters like Rob van de Wouw, Rik Mol and Rodolfo Neves. Please check Bye-Ya’s most recent album “Further Arrivals” (Challenge records) with the phenomenal Brian Lynch on trumpet. Highly recommended!
