Together with saxophonist Iman Spaargaren I initiated the jazz-fusion groep TRUNK. TRUNK. is about funk and danceable rhythms, jazz-complexity embedded in smart, appealing compositions and a strong live performance. Coherent groove oriented energy is what gives TRUNK its bite. This 4-wheel drive moves over every harmonic and metric terrain possible. 

The band’s innovative compositions are deeply informed by boundary-breaking greats such as Rudder, Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew and Medeski, Martin, and Wood’s spirit of jam-based improvisation, all of which inspire their dynamic live shows.


They succesfully played the Dutch club and jazzfestival circuit for years and finally come up with a hot album that will be presented soon.
