Joep van Leeuwen_2_klein.jpg

Joep van Leeuwen plays melodic modern Jazz. His style is modest and even though the roots of Bebop and Hardbop are audible, his preference for cool jazz is evident, however without being cold! He is interested in real, genuine, swinging jazz and has an almost genetic aversion against superficiality. His compositions range from jazz themes and fully composed music to extended pieces in Third Stream style where composed sections alternate with improvised passages. Remarkable are his pieces for duo’s like trombone & guitar and church organ & guitar/synthesizer guitar. His cross-over compositions include pieces for string quartet expanded with guitar and bass and saxophone quartet with jazz guitar.
