Melodious, tasteful, swinging jazz in the line-up guitar, double bass and drums. From swinging jazz standard to bossa nova and pop song in jazz style to soul jazz.

1975 - present: Jazz guitarist, composer, bandleader

Joep van Leeuwen plays in line-ups varying from solo jazz guitar to big band. In addition, he explores musical border traffic in jazz cross over line-ups such as church organ, string quartets and Gregorian music. Based in Maastricht, he plays on stages in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Switzerland, the USA and efestivals such as (3 times at the) Montreux Jazz Festival, Jazz à Liège, Jazz Mecca, Music Nights and Moulin de Broukay.

Joep van Leeuwen plays melodic modern jazz, varying smoothly from acoustic guitar to amplified guitar and synthesizer guitar. His style is modest but intensive. He has an almost genetic aversion to superficiality. The roots of Bebop and Hardbop can be heard with an undertone of Cool Jazz, however, without being cold!

In addition to jazz themes, Joep van Leeuwen composed for duos such as guitar & trombone, guitar & church organ, but also for big band and string quartets extended with guitar and c-bass.
