Jasper Blom's all star band, with guitarist Jesse van Ruller, Frans van der Hoeven and Martijn Vink, has been around for 12 years and has already released six CDs. Typical are the intelligent compositions and tight improvisations. In recent years, the quartet has often played with well-known international soloists. This time it is the turn of the young Cologne pianist Pablo Held. He is the figurehead of the young German jazz generation and has already toured with the great jazz heroes such as John Scofield and Chris Potter.Recently the Jasper Blom Quartet under the name Polyphony released an unparalleled double CD with live recordings from the BIMHUIS, with the Belgian trumpeter Bert Joris and the German trombonist Nils Wogram as guests. In this POLYPHONY series, the quartet now continues with Pablo Held.In 2019 Jasper Blom won the Buma Boy Edgar Prize, the most important prize in the Netherlands in the field of jazz and improvised music. From the jury report:'For many years, and with unrelenting inspiration, Jasper Blom shares his sense for the great musical adventure, the diversity, humor, connection, improvisation and his extensive, in-depth oeuvre with us, the listeners.'Bimhuis & corona Jasper Blom sax, Jesse van Ruller guitar, Frans van der Hoeven bass, Martijn Vink drums Pablo Held piano
