One of the rising stars of the European jazz scene, tenor saxophonist Gideon Tazelaar grew up in the Netherlands, where he developed his musical skills by playing with saxophonist Benjamin Herman and drummer John Engels from a young age.

A prodigious talent, he was admitted to the Bachelor’s degree programme at Amsterdam Conservatoire at the age of just 14.

In 2017 he moved to New York City, where he studied at the Juilliard School of Music and played with and was mentored by George Coleman and Wynton Marsalis.

He currently spends time between his native Amsterdam and New York, where he performs as a sideman with some of the biggest names in jazz, including Wynton Marsalis, Dr Lonnie Smith, Eric Alexander and Dick Oatts.

His debut album ‘Volume One’ which he co-released with trumpeter Ian Cleaver, features Danish bassist Felix Moseholm and Jorge Rossy on drums, both of whom are currently touring as two thirds of the Brad Mehldau Trio.
