The van Voorst Jazz Quartet
Led by Jan van Voorst van Beest, the van Voorst Jazz group has taken many forms over the last 20 years, with variations of jazz music and instrumentation, from organ/drums driven duos and small straight ahead groups to outside jazz with hints of the hard sounds of the 60s and 70s. In it's current formation, the van Voorst Jazz Quartet will be performing a selection of original jazz compositions and familiar standards.
