Renowned jazz trumpeter and composer Angelo Verploegen selected some of his own compositions for, A Handful of Stories, a new album with Just Listen Records. This swinging jazz quintet project, led by Verploegen, is a testament to his versatile musical journey, showcasing his unique ability to traverse various jazz styles, from straight-ahead jazz to free improvisation.

In A Handful of Stories, Verploegen takes a moment of retrospection, bringing to life a selection of original compositions crafted over the past 25 years.

Verploegen is joined by saxophonist Nils van Haften, pianist Marc van Roon, bassist Guus Bakker, and drummer Jasper van Hulten in this musical adventure.

The album's themes of reflection, celebration, and musical storytelling are woven throughout compositions inspired by life experiences, magical performances, and moments of reflection. This album promises to be a treasure trove of musical experiences, blending the essence of swinging jazz with the art of storytelling, all wrapped up in Verploegen's unique style.
