Jasper Blom Quartet Short Info

JASPER BLOM QUARTET

The Jasper Blom Quartet features four internationally acclaimed Dutch jazz musicians, that have been playing together for more than 20 years.
Blom's intelligent compositions cover a wide range of stylistic influences from pop music via jazz to free improvised soundscapes.
In his work stories develop, while musical languages are challenged by the individuality and interplay of the band members. A true showcase of what melody, rhythm and harmony have to offer in composition and improvisation. The JBQ has four CDs out with all original material.

Jasper Blom is a leading tenorsaxophonist of the Dutch Jazz scene and one of the most versatile soloists of the BeNeLux.
Jesse van Ruller has established an international reputation since winning the Thelonious Monk Award and is considered to be one of the top jazz guitarists of the world.
Frans van der Hoeven is probably the most sought after double bass player in the Netherlands and has performed with every major jazz soloist passing through the Benelux (a.o. Clark Terry, Johnny Griffin, Art Farmer, Tom Harrell).
Drummer Martijn Vink has rapidly established himself as one of Europe's most wanted session drummers through his work with the Metropole Orchestra, the WDR Big Band, Brussels Jazz Orchestra, as well as artists like Vince Mendoza, Lee Konitz, Joe Lovano and Boyan Z.
