Wilma Baan - A Beautiful Friendship

The Bulls Head, SW13 9PY , [Venue Details]

Born in the Netherlands, Wilma Baan’s musical career began at the tender age of 3, humming herself to sleep with parts of the Brandenburg Concertos – a serious side effect of being spoon fed JS Bach and Miles Davis in equal amounts from the moment she was born.

A career in nursing beckoned, although her love of jazz endured, and she sang with various jazz ensembles and performed at jazz clubs and festivals including the North Sea Jazz Festival in The Hague where she met vocalists Ernestine Anderson and Sarah Vaughan.

Other special moments included performing alongside Jean 'Toots' Thielemans and sharing a chat and a hug at Ronnie Scott's with idol Mark Murphy. Among her radio performances, accompanied by the KRO Orchestra, she sang live for a broadcast about the life and work of Irving Berlin.

After bringing up a family, which included spells in Oman, Brunei & Greece, Wilma finally settled in the UK. A chance opportunity to perform with singer/pianist Joe Stilgoe, followed by a series of dates with pianist Alex Hutton, reignited the spark for jazz music before the pandemic brought everything to a grinding halt.
