Jonathan's passion for music reflects in many various ways: comprising the restless search for new artistic discoveries in aspects of technique, texture, concept and approach of avant-garde and contemporary improvised music, and a deep love for jazz and rock music, full of driving beats and colorful harmony, solid and strong. In all his work, both sides shine through to some degree, creating a hybrid, half L'art pour l'art, half Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll.
After graduating in jazz double bass at the Prins Claus Conservatorium (Groningen, NL) and the University of the Arts (Philadelphia, USA), Jonathan is currently a selected student of the European Jazz Master program. He has worked with internationally esteemed jazz greats such as Michael Moore, David Berkman, Gene Jackson, Don Braden, and many others. Jonathan is currently living and working in Copenhagen (DK), Amsterdam (NL) and Berlin (DE). (Do not ask how one can live in three different cities. Maybe living in the car would be the more appropriate description.)
