Since September 2007, I have been Professor of Jazz and Improvised Music at the University of Amsterdam whilst working as Research coordinator in the Jazz and Classical Master’s program at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. This post requires me to deliver Music history electives in the Jazz Masters program and teach music history for the Bachelors programme. Working across both University and Conservatoire settings has provided me with valuable insights into different musical environments and has enabled me to develop research interests that are both practically and theoretically focused.
We are continuing to redevelop the Rhythm Changes website as a jazz research portal for European jazz researchers. Please bear with us as we populate the site, and sign up or visit us again to see how we are getting on. If you have some material or feature you think we should be including, do get in touch.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have decided to postpone the seventh Rhythm Changes conference Jazz Now! to next year, most likely 26-29 August 2021, in Amsterdam. We fear that in the coming months many delegates will have difficulties making travel arrangements; we also expect that the end of the current academic year and the start of the next will require many delegates to be on their posts by the end of August.
Given the circumstances, we will circulate the CfP again this fall.
Best wishes, and stay healthy! ...
