The fact that Amsterdam is an important European jazz city is mainly thanks to the Bimhuis. Jazz and improvising musicians from the country and abroad perform in the concert hall. Jazz greats like John Scofield even claim that the international jazz venue is one of their top 10 venues to play worldwide. Every year, the Bimhuis presents the biggest Dutch jazz prize, the Boy Edgar Prize.
