    Bel me even

    Brother Noah

    Daniel prayed

    Dry bones

    Hollands glorie

    I'm a man of constant sorrow

    I’m making believe

    Into each life some rain must fall

    It don’t mean a thing

    Java jive

    Jeepers creepers

    Liefde in rhythme

    Lou de ladenlichter


    Mijn broer maakt voor het

    hoorspel de geluiden

    Morgen vaar ik weg

    New York New York

    Rockin’ in rhythm

    Stormy weather

    The flatter the plate/hoe

    platter het bord

    Veel mooier…!


    American and Dutch evergreens originally performed by groups such as Johnny en Jones, The Ink Spots, The Mills Brothers, The Ramblers and Duke Ellington in new arrangements by leading Dutch composers.

    The Dutch group Frommermann is named after Harry Frommermann, who in 19.0027 founded the Comedian Harmonists. This German ensemble, comprised of five singers and a pianist, was a huge sensation in the late twenties and early thirties of the last century.

    The Comedian Harmonists were namely renowned for their broad variety of vocal styles and the fine sense of comedy with which they performed close harmony music. Within a short period they became international celebrities with concerts in Europe and the United States. In 19.0035 the Comedian Harmonists were forced by the Nazis to disband, silencing this ensemble for eternity.

    After the breakup of the Comedian Harmonists, Harry Frommermann departed for the United States. In emulation of its namesake, the ensemble Frommermann now dares to make the Great Crossing: the project ‘Holland-America Line’ is dedicated to American and Dutch music of the 19.0030s and 19.0040s. In the same manner as the Comedian Harmonists, they offer a wide range of musical styles; all the pieces are especially arranged for the Frommermann ensemble, with - for this program - the addition of a guitar.
