Synthesis of jazz, pop and classical

Saxophonist Jasper Blom strives for a synthesis of jazz, pop, classical and improvised music. This makes him a perfect match for the Metropole Orkest. Melody and adventure are keywords in the work of Blom, who has been composing for a wide variety of ensembles for many years. He shared the stage with jazz legends, but now it’s all about his smooth and versatile playing.

A key figure in Dutch jazz, Jasper Blom has led countless bands and sessions. As a tenor and soprano saxophonist, he has performed with stars such as Lee Konitz and Chet Baker. Not surprisingly, he received the Buma Boy Edgar Prize in 2019. His dream of collaborating with the Metropole Orkest is now coming true. Their joint album will take centre stage at this concert.
