Fascinated by the sound of the chromatic harmonica, Hermine Deurloo exchanged her alto saxophone for this small instrument. And with success: she has now performed with artists ranging from Trijntje Oosterhuis, Douwe Bob, and Mike Boddé to the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw, the Willem Breuker Kollektief and the Marinierskapel. Deurloo operates in jazz, but does not allow itself to be limited by a particular style.
She made her last CD (Riverbeast, Zennez Records) with legendary drummer Steve Gadd, as well as with Alain Clark, and before that (Living Here, Zennez Records) with pianist Rembrandt Frerichs, drummer Jim Black and cellist Jörg Brinkmann.
Recently she was seen in the program Jinek and with Mike Boddé at Podium Witteman. Hermine played in many films (De Wilde Stad) and commercials.
Even if you don’t know her name yet, you know her sound: Deurloo gives a well-known smoked sausage that little bit extra in an advertisement.
