Iman is a multi-reed player, arranger and composer.
Iman has a distinctive way of playing and a very personal tone on his horn. He likes to search for different ways of expressing himself in different kinds of music. His main musical goal is to have a great deal of freedom in melody, hamony and rhythm and presenting that in a comprehensible context for the listener.
During the past few years Iman has been busy with a wide variety of music groups such as Iman Spaargaren Undercurrent, Iman Spaargaren Quartet & Septet, Captain Hook, European Union Quartet, Thelonious4 and New Generation Bigband.
In 2012 Iman and his Iman Spaargaren Quartet do the prestigious Young VIPs Tour 2012. He will release a new album with Thelonious4 featuring Tony Miceli and will do a series of concerts with European Union Quartet in Holland, Belgium and the UK.
