About

Born in 1987 (Pitrufquén/Chili), Jan started his musical education at the age of eight.

He had a classical schooling at The Academy of Grimbergen and at The School of Arts in Brussels.

After becoming more and more interested in Jazz music he decided to study at The Royal Conservatory of Brussels with Gino Lattuca.

Beside school, he followed various masterclasses, both abroad and inland. (e.g. Bert Joris (BE), Avishai Cohen (ISR), Scott Colley (USA), Eddie Henderson (USA), Miguel Zennon (PRI)…

Active in different projects, Jan had the opportunity to perform with great musicians, bands and institutes such as The Young Jazz Orchestra, The National Theater Of Gent (NTGENT), The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Bravo Bigband, Jazz Station Bigband, Toots Thielemans, Bob Mintzer, Pierre Bertrand, Michel Herr….

At the moment Jan is also teaching in the Brussels region. More specifically in The Academy of Schaarbeek, Sint- Lambrechts Woluwe and Sint-Agatha Berchem.

Bands

ChromozONE (artistic leader)


“They share each others DNA due to experimental breeding. Hoping to become immortal, they were kept in quarantine for further observation.

Unluckily, after 21 days, disastrous side effects started to occur. Signs of mental and physical disorders were becoming glaringly visible.

Seeing them live right now would be in fact a ****ing miracle as their time on earth is limited.

ChromozONE is allowed to bring trip-hop, funk and jazz but only with doctor’s certificate.”

This quintet brings music that is strongly influenced by Hip hop and R&B.

ChromozONE

Line up: Jan Van Moer/flugel/trumpet/compositions – Jeroen Capens/tenorsax – Martin Salemi/Piano/Rhodes/Korg – Otto Kint/electric bas – Michael De Greef/drums

 

 

ME & MY TRIBE (artistic leader)


“Jazz meets world music” is how to describe the music of this septet. An original repertoire written by Jan Van Moer is a bright mix of sounds and influences from all over the world. Rhythms from Africa and Latin America combined with sounds of the Middle East. An unique concept definitely worth seeing.
