JEROEN PEK – Jazz flautist – Composer
Based both in The Netherlands and France, Jeroen Pek is international considered as one of the leading jazz flute players of today. He is notable for a remarkable personal ‘voice’ on his instrument. In addition to virtuosity this voice is greatly determined by ‘ joyful power play ‘, an impressive palette of colors and dynamics as well as a great deal of curiousity and little fear of the fringes. This approach made Jeroen the eclectic musician/composer he is today.
“The best jazz flautist we have!… There is an exceptional energy and click between these four great musicians. Reaching out, inviting and sharing… making the audience part of an adventure…they are able to create this experience on practically any stage, from intimate venues to major festivals”. (Aad van Nieuwkerk, jazz radio producer national broadcaster VPRO/Vrije Geluiden, The Netherlands).
