“Iggy Pop at a jazz festival ?!”, we hear some of you grumbling. Yes! Once asked who he would like to see in the supporting act of The Stooges, the punk legend Sun Ra replied. (And so it happened.) And two years ago he recorded the very impressive jazz album Loneliness Road with pianist Jamie Saft, bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Bobby Previte. To say the least: Iggy Pop has something with jazz.

Even more: his latest album is called Free, and coincidentally lets jazz be just that – free! Moreover, the album was almost completely penned by the American jazz trumpet player Leron Thomas and the American music magazine Rolling Stone was surprised – in a positive way – about the jazzy wind players and “Sinatra-style crooning” on the album.

But Iggy Pop will not only play songs from Free at Jazz Middelheim. You can also expect uncut versions of classics such as “I Wanna Be Your Dog”, “The Passenger” and “Lust for Life”!
