Dutch bassist, composer and educator Joris Teepe arrived in New York in 1992. He took lessons with Ron Carter, quickly met many musicians and started to work a lot. A year later he recorded his first CD, with a band co-led by Don Braden. From that point everything really took off for Joris and he became a bassist in great demand with a warm and even tone. He has been working with the “who-is-who in Jazz”, such as Benny Golson, Sonny Fortune, Rashied Ali, Billy Hart and Randy Brecker. Since 2001 Teepe was the Director of Jazz Studies at the Prins Claus Conservatory in Groningen.
He is now an teacher and active advisor to this department.
