Jasper van't Hof
Keyboards in any form - that is his world. The grand piano, the electric organ, even the church organ. He feels familiar with all these instruments. And who ever listenes live to Jasper, feels (and sees) his vivid way of making music. There is no fixed path, no style to follow, Jasper gives you impressions of jazz from the very beginning up to Free Jazz, as well as classical movements.
 
At the age of 25, in 1972 he gained wider recognition during the Berliner Jazztage. In the years to follow he started a lot of projects like Pork Pie, Association P.C., and Pili-Pili. Great names are bound to the musical career of Jasper: Manfred Schoof, Charlie Mariano, Philip Catherine, Aldo Romano, Toto Blanke, Chris Hinze, Archie Shepp, to mentioned only some of them.
