The Jasper Blom Quartet (JBQ) features 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, JBQ is a true showcase of what melody, rhythm and harmony can offer in composition and improvisation. JBQ performs regularly throughout Europe on major international festivals and in clubs. Recently JBQ has started working with internationally acclaimed soloists.

They just released a fantastic live double CD entitled Polyphony on the prestigious London label Whirlwind Recordings. It features Belgiums #1 trumpet player Bert Joris and Nils Wogram, one of the best trombone players in the world. Polyphony part 3 features jazz-pianist Pablo Held, one of the most prominent figures of the young German jazz generation. Since winning the Rising Star Award of the European Concert Hall Organization, Held is touring the world with his trio. Highlights are his collaborations with John Scofield and Chris Potter.
