Profile Information

Where are you located?
Rotterdam - EU
What is your affiliation to the Jazz World?
Musical Artist, Composer, Graphic Designer
Tell us a little about your background...
Growing up in the harbour city of Rotterdam, JooZz developed an ‘international’ taste for life at an early age. The mixture of different cultures, races and their visible footprint gave him his first inspiration for loving all facets of rhythm, rhyme and music.

After graduating from high school, he was admitted to the Rotterdam School of Arts, where his musical talents and experience would be further developed. Adding a classical education to his self-learned abilities, he rapidly developed a never ending taste for Jazz.

As a composer, writer, piano artist and sound innovator, JooZz still manages to captivate his world-wide audience with his creative compositions and never ending enthusiasm for playing the right ‘tune’
at the right time. Originals only!

January 2011

Online jamming is the thing! Download some jams here.

December 2010

New videos 'One more please' and 'Main manu'.
The 'Main manu' song is named after the French sax player Manu.
After composing this tune I was playing it on Ninjam as Manu logged in and instantly played along. If you'd like to listen to that jam, try this.

November 2010

Some new tunes, 'Main manu' and a better 'Junky Fay'.
I recently met French guitarist Laurent Karcher, who so generously added his talents to my song 'Mi razón'.

Online jam

Last month I played in an online jam. One of the musicians made this cool video. Furniture aside, it's dancing time!!

Live stream

The 25th of july I had the privilege of visiting Willy Sparrow (a.k.a. Al Hofmann), we played & streamed for almost 2 hours. What a fabulous musician!

Aiden Witrial, a German friend of ours, made this video.

Metameets 2009 Amsterdam

From 22 - 24 May European conference addressing the present and future of user-created virtual worlds, in Amsterdam.

Final part of MetaMeets09 was a live concert by Willy Sparrow (aka. Al Hofmann), Xander Nichting and myself from Molly Malones Irish Pub. All three of us perform in virtual worlds as well, but we had never before met in real life.

This was a 'mixed-reality-event'. The live show was simultaneously streamed into the Second Life platform. Several other sites/platforms were broadcasting this unique event too.

Chantal Harvey was also present and made this video impression.

The Jazz Network Worldwide

Being in The Jazz Network feels like coming home actually. I feel very welcome and words can hardly describe my gratitude towards Jaijai Jackson.
I sincerely hope The Jazz Network Worldwide will help me to get in touch with people who can help me realize my recording ambitions.
Since writing music is the next best thing to playing it, I also hope to find a good home for my compositions.

Hope all is well with you and yours. I like the new version of My Kingdom, but now my favorite is Ilatuns. Keep them coming -- you're on a role!

Thanks jooZz

I appreciate all the comments. There are a few of these songs that I just look forward to playing this time of year. I go to lounges around town and sit-in just to play my favorites. I only get one month to get it out of my system, So I try to take advantage of it when December comes around. This Christmas is my Favorite; I have not put it up yet. Still Tweeking.

Check out some of the Christmas Material and let me know what you think. I plan to add a few more soon.

Hope all is well with you.

Have a great day!

I'm doing well JooZz, and I hope you are too. Still working on a few projects, so I am staying busy. I plan to finish everything by the end of the year. I put another mix of "my kingdom" on my page; the new version doesn't distort as much as the 1st. Check it out and see if it works better for you.

I have heard more about skype, but I still have not found the time to really look into it the way I would like. Still, I want to thank you for the tip.


















Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

The 2018 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll

Over 130 critics voted on the best jazz albums of 2018 — celebrated elders dominated the top of the results, but a class of younger musicians is rising.
