Tenor Jeroen Van Herzeele does not like stagnation. The man lives and breathes classic jazz, he was tutored by Dave Pike and John Ruocco at the Antwerp Jazz Studio, attended workshops in the US with Joe Lovano and David Liebman, but these days he seems to get his satisfaction elsewhere.

In the acid-jazz-rock-rap of his band ‘Greetings from Mercury’, in Ben Sluijs’s Ornette-esque quartet and the African caravan of Mâäk’s Spirit – with whom he will be performing at Flemish Jazz Meeting. He has also played/plays with Toots Thielemans, Chris Joris Experience, Philip Catherine, Act Big Band, Octurn, Nathalie Loriers Quartet and Kris Defoort & Dreamtime. His travels in and out of the jazz landscape have brought him as far afield as Syria, Lebanon, Kuwait, Canada, the US and large parts of Europe and Africa.

In 1999 Van Herzeele received the Django d’Or prize, which is awarded annually to an outstanding young jazz musician, and the Louis Paul Boon prize for his body of work.
