Coos Zwagerman (Den Helder, 1985) starts playing the jazz trumpet at a young age. His first mentor is Sytze van Duin (formerly of the Dutch Swing College Band). Convinced of his love for jazz music, Coos then studies at the conservatory of Amsterdam under Ruud Breuls (Metropole Orkest). He graduates cum laude in 2010. Coos wins the prizes for best soloist at the Dutch National Big Band Concours and the Kobe Jazz Street Award at the Breda Jazz Festival.
He reaches fame with own bands, like The Revivalists, and is a highly appreciated side man for artists like Jett Rebel, Glenn Miller Orchestra, Kris Berry and Ruben Hein and the Dutch Concert Big Band.
