The music you find on this Gigmit page is from his Edison Award nominated album "A Long Story Short" that came out in 2014. Rembrandt (1977) is a pianist with a broad perspective. He is familiar with the American jazz tradition, but wants to avoid the well-trodden path. His curiosity and knowledge of the art music of different parts of the world urge his music to develop constantly.
At age 22 Rembrandt made his debut at the North Sea Jazz Festival. During that time he received the scholarship for excelling young musicians to study in the United States. Directly after graduating he was asked to start teaching at various conservatories.
In 2007 his debut album Self Portrait was nominated for the Dutch Grammy (Edison Award) His music brought him playing at legendary Jazzclub Birdland in New York and festivals and clubs in Europe and the Middle East.
