May 2 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 pm
Boy Edgar Prize Concert Tour, the most prestigious award for jazz and improvised music in the Netherlands, awarded to Jasper Blom. In POLYPHONY 3, the prominent German jazz pianist Pablo Held, winner of the Rising Star Award of the European Concert Hall Organization is featured. The JBQ are four internationally acclaimed Dutch jazz musicians, that have been together for more than 12 years. Blom’s intelligent compositions cover a wide range of stylistic influences. Supported by the stellar playing of guitarist Jesse van Ruller and one of the most amazing European jazz drummers, Martijn Vink, the Jasper Blom Quartet is a true showcase of what melody, rhythm and harmony have to offer in composition and improvisation. The JBQ performs regularly throughout Europe on major international festivals and in clubs. Under the name “POLYPHONY” the JBQ has started working with internationally acclaimed soloists. In POLYPHONY 3, the Tone-clock system as developed by the Dutch classical composer Peter Schat is the departure point for newly composed music. Symmetrical tone rows and triads generated by the tone-clock system create new melodies, new harmonies and new improvisation material.
