Allard Buwalda called his music “original, individualistic and very well written”, Joan Reinders gave him a big ‘Bravo!’, and Ed Partyka commented after playing a gig with the New European Jazz Collective: “Great arrangements, great compositions, great conducting!”

Rob Spelberg has not yet been on the European big band scene for a long time, but everywhere he goes he wins over the audience with his genuine personality, his energy, and his wonderful compositions and arrangements. A former composition student of Ed Partyka, he is constantly involved in new big band projects throughout Europe, developing his own personal style both as a writer and conductor. Keep your ears open, ‘cause you might hear his music come by sooner than you think!
