Turkish trombonist Efe Erdem has lived in Rotterdam since 2008. After attending the Hacettepe Conservatory in Ankara, he graduated in 2012 from Codarts in Rotterdam under Bart van Lier and Ilja Reingoud.
Erdem has played in orchestras and bands from an early age and likes to improvise. One of his regular bands is the Re:Freshed Orchestra, Di-rect, Doe Maar and Anouk, but he has also played with countless international figures such as O’Jays, Marcus Miller, Benny Golson, Tony Allen, Knower, band members of Rolling Stones, Snarky Puppy, Roy Hargrove, Bilal and Robert Glasper.
He also recorded for many international artists such as American jazz and soul singer Frank McComb. Erdem presented his debut EP First Kiss in 2016, and his first full album is scheduled for release later this year. Erdem appears with his quintet at Jazzcafe Dizzy and will also invite Rotterdam singer Lady Shaynah up on stage.
