Event Details


Quartet 1000 brings together four highly acclaimed improvisers, who played with all the biggest names in the improvised music. Their approach is adventurous, virtuoso and surprising at all times. Most of the band’s repertoire is composed by the leader Jan Klare, whose pieces are characterised by strong structures while the instruments constantly shift between leading and accompanying roles.

Jan Klare – alto saxophone
Bart Maris – trumpet
Wilbert de Joode – bass
Michael Vatcher – drums



Michael Moore has a deep understanding of both the American jazz and the Dutch improvised music traditions, but his writing and playing are also influenced by music from other cultures. He has played Turkish music with Ogüz Büyükberber and Hüsnü Senlendirici, Malinese with Toumani Diabate, Keletigui Diabate and Habib Koite, Portuguese with Fernando Lameirinhas and Cristina Branco, and Brazilian with Rogerio Bicudo, Banda Mantiqueira and Paulo Moura. The musics of Sicily, Madagascar, Istria and Indonesia have also been particularly influential. He has collaborated with and been influenced by poets and poetry, dancers and other visual artists. Michael continues to write, improvise, play and prepare new releases for Ramboy and other labels.
