Bart Wirtz

Bart WirtzFrank de Graaf


Bart Wirtz has a flexible and versatile style, ranging from jazz, groove and blues to freer explorations. Wirtz has his own sound and open-minded approach to playing jazz. After being honoured with many prestigious awards (including the Erasmus Jazz Prize, the Leiden Jazz Award and the Breda Jazz Prize) his career took off when he won an Edison award (dutch grammy) for his album ‘iDreamer’ in 2012.
‘Interview’ is the new album of Bart Wirtz, in cooperation with one of the world’s greatest trumpet players Sean Jones (the orchestra of Wynton Marsalis, the Marcus Miller band). This album was again nominated for an Edison in 2014.
For this recording, the line up is expanded with vibraphone, bass clarinet and keys. A new, fresh and surprising sound which crosses over with different styles, forging connections with modern rock, roots and jazz influences.




"One of the finest young saxophonists in Europe today, Bart Wirtz adds his own personality to every note he plays."
- Scott Yanow, downbeat -

" Bart Wirtz is the hope of the hip Dutch Jazz scene.”
- John Oomkes-

"(∗∗∗∗1/2)"
- Ken Vos, Jazzism magazine -

" He knows the licks of the great players, but at the same time he delivers his own signature: sometimes shrill, but warm and never at expense of the group."
- Amanda Kuyper, NRC Handelsblad -

"Melodically strong, musically diverse and accessible. Interview is an album with a high playable factor"
- Gijsbert Kamer, Volkskrant -
