There’s a lot of interaction between Amsterdam and Cologne musicians.  Cologne musicians who regularly pop up in Amsterdam include Frank Gratkowski (Bik Bent Braam), Thomas Heberer (ICP), Thomas Lehn (Cortet) en Simon Nabatov.  Amsterdam musicians feature strongly in Cologne’s jazz and impro programming - Amsterdam groups ICP and Available Jelly were recent guests in the series Never Mind the Tulips in the Stadgarten there.  And Wolter Wierbos plays in two Cologne formations - Long Run Development of the Universe (Matthias Schubert, Carl ludwig Hübsch, Wolter Wierbos) and Albrecht Maurer’s Trio Works.  You get the picture – it’s a busy two way street.This project has been realised with the support of the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Amsterdam, the SNS Reaal Fonds, the Netherlands Embassy in Berlin and the Ministery of Education, Culture and Science.
