Jos Jansen as a Soloist
Bass trombonist Jos Jansen is a many-sided phenomenon on the bass trombone. He feels at home in every genre. From classical music to jazz, from a tender berceuse to Egerländer festive music. On his bass trombone he plays sweet-voiced sounds as easily as a splendid fanfare. Serious at times and the next instant jesting and joking.
As a performer through and through, Jos Jansen likes to add an extra touch to your concert. Varying from a bass trombonist playing classical music to a comedian who engages his instrument in a virtuoso way for theatrical amusement. A full programme is presented according to the organization’s wishes after consultation.
