The Bop Collective is an octet influenced by Jazz music. The 8 musicians of the band have a strong relation with the Jazz tradition: they all come from playing broadway standars, swing and hard-bop.
The further step of this band is a new approach to this music based in the combination of these influences and the addition of new rhythms and metric modulations. They play original music and arrangements that have really singable melodies.
They released its first CD (The Bop Collective) in June 2018. The same year, the octet won the Public Prize of the prestigious Dutch Jazz Competition.
Since then, the band never stopped growing up. They had performed in important venues and festivals such as Bimhuis (Amsterdam), Jamboree (Barcelona), Nova Jazz Cava (Terrassa), Grachtenfestival (Amsterdam), Amersfoort Jazz Festival, Paradox (Tilburg).
