‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ is the traditional English bridal rhyme, ending with and a silver sixpence in her shoe. Five little things, often pieces of clothes, small presents or even heirlooms to bring good luck to the bride. Something old stands for tradition and family, something new for a hopeful future and forthcoming happiness, something borrowed reminds the bride of all her friends, always ready to advise and assist, and something blue symbolises the love and fidelity of the new couple. And finally a silver sixpence to bring wealth.

Whether superstitious or not, the message is clear: don’t marry on the spur of the moment, it needs preparation and consideration. Or don’t you think so? Would you dare to just tie the knot, confidently taking everything with you without a second thought? Do you believe in love at first sight? You just know it will be fine…

The match between Holland Baroque Society and Eric Vloeimans has a little of both. One of the marriage partners – leaving aside who is the bride and who the groom – stands firmly in the world of the Baroque but pricks up its ears to the sounds of today. The other is a magician on the trumpet, improvising, composing, listening and ever ready to learn. A marriage between two such different partners inevitably blurs boundaries and makes time flow. The trumpet, bandoneon and historical instruments merge to create a colourful present for all listeners, like the icing on a wedding cake.

Press reviews

Parool

The album closes with the Beatles classic Blackbird. For a new cover of such a famed song, there must be a good reason. This version is more beautiful than composer Paul McCartney could have dreamed.

After Lunch

Old, New & Blue is more than just an album full of beautiful music. Holland Baroque Society and Eric Vloeimans offer a listening experience that is enriching and therefore really adds something special to the endless amount of music that is already there.

Leeuwarder Courant

Eric Vloeimans and the Holland Baroque Society work on coloring pictures whose contours have either been just drawn up or are from centuries ago.

Time and time again, the result is a compelling whole of surprising sound landscapes. This is great music for Jazz lovers and Baroque fans alike.

Akkoord Magazine

Trumpeter Vloeimans adapts to the ensemble like a chameleon. The Baroque musicians of the Holland Baroque Society also show their flexibility here.

NRC

The album features some exciting interaction. The trumpet blends beautifully with the baroque instruments.

Luister

The trumpet player’s sensual tone is framed by the refined silver sound of the Holland Baroque Society. This is a happy encounter. 5 Stars!

Inspiratie Magazine

Vloeimans’ organic play, which – typical of jazz – plays around the beats of the bars, complements the strict rhythm of the baroque in an unexpected way.
