Jasper Blom Quartet & Bert Joris
November 18th trumpet-player Bert Joris will give a concert at Intro with the famous Jasper Blom Quartet. As Dutch Belgian jazz quintet they use polyphony as a starting point for composing new repertoire.
‘As an excellent musician and producer Jasper Blom knows exactly how to shape his ideas… the musical material is outstanding’ (de Volkskrant)
The Jasper Blom Quartet
The Jasper Blom Quartet is an “all star cast” with guitarist Jesse van Ruller, Frans van der Hoeven and Martijn Vink. So far they have released 4 critically acclaimed cd’s. Compositions are by Jasper Blom and provide an electro-jazz cocktail of style influences which takes the joy of experimentation, freedom in interaction between players, effects, funkgrooves and jazzswing as it’s starting points. The quartet plays international jazz festivals and stages with among others Italian trumpeter Marco Tamburini and American alto saxophonist Dick Oats as guest soloists. The JBQ played at (amongst others) North Sea Jazz Festival, Rotterdam International Jazz,BIMhuis Amsterdam, ELBjazz Hamburg, Borusan House Istanbul, Trondheim Jazz Festival, Birdland Hamburg, Unterfahrt Munich, A Trane Berlin etc…

Gifted soloist, productive composer and arranger and also as a bandleader he is a remarkable appearance in the jazzscene. His activities as a jazz teacher stretch throughout Europe and beyond. Most notably he has a teaching position in Luzerne.
