Jasper Van't Hof is a pianist and composer. He is widely known for his virtuosic technique on the keyboard, and is one of the most active jazz musicians in Europe. His natural curiosity has seen him become one of the leading innovators in the European jazz scene, on both grand and electric piano, as well as on the synthesizer and church organ. It also enabled him to eschew the restrictions of a single style, allowing him to roam freely between bebop, free jazz, groove, jazz-rock, fusion, pop and world music. He's been named best jazz pianist in Europe by international jazz magazines on several occasions, and has more than 500 compositions and almost 80 recordings to his name. On 6 December Jasper van 't Hof received the Buma Boy Edgar Prize 2018, the most prestigious award for jazz and improvised music in the Netherlands. As part of the award, Van 't Hof will curated a concert evening at the BIMHUIS.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
