About me

Peter Kanters – Jazz guitarist
My first and foremost activity is playing jazz guitar. After I had a classical guitar training, I started with my first jazz band when I was 16. At that time I lived in Breda, “the hottest place in the south” in the Netherlands, famous for the well known Breda Jazz Festival. Since then I have played in a number of different bands with varying styles: dixieland, hot-dance music, swing, bossa-nova and pop music. The music that I like the most is swing, ranging from trio’s (Nat King Cole), small combo’s (Benny Goodman sextet) to Big Bands (Count Basie). Some milestones:
