For some reason we find more and more violin players on stage in the field of jazz.

In history of course there was the American Joe Venuti and France knew its Stéphane Grappelli (together with  Django Rheindhardt and the  Hot club de France).

A bit more modern was  Jean Luc Ponti.


And then suddenly there is the Dutch Zapp string quartet with leader  Oene van Geel. And following their path there is the Kaas quartet (with Tessa Zoutendijk).


Oene van Geel (1973) studied at  Rotterdam conservatory and the Sweelinck Conservatory (South-Indian and contemporain music)


Next to  Zapp we can find him in groups like  Voer and Oxymore.

And on a regular base he plays with  Anton Goudsmit and  bass guitarist Mark Haanstra (a mate from his first days as performing musician)



On 21 januari 2009 Oene van Geel played at Paradox with the Oxymore quintet.
