Time Bomb!

Ambroos De Schepper - alto saxophone

Matteo Mazzù - electric bass
Denis Baeten - drums


Brussels based drummer Denis Baeten wanted to strike hard with the release of his first album with an original concept : try to entirely produce a full length album in one day. By inviting musicians at the studio without a rehearsal, Denis wanted to capture the energy of the moment in the most spontaneous way possible. Going back to the essence of Jazz but with a totally modern sound. The mix is done in real time and the graphic designer got inspired by the music while creating the artwork directly at the studio as well. The whole day got filmed and edited into a documentary that has been put on a custom USB stick. The USB stick comes with a custom box that has been made that same day. A collector object containing some rough, uncompromised music, between melodic modern jazz, wild rock’n’roll, dreamy pop and a « film noir » soundtrack. We invite you to watch the « making of » documentary of this unique performance. The album was released on September 15th 2021

Nicolas en Jeroen spelen te samen sinds…lang. Antoine heeft zich bij de groep aangesloten het natuurlijke wijze  die we van hem nu verwachten.

Dit trio is een tweede versie van de groep die in 2000 voor Igloo optrad met drummer Steve Altenberg en zanger Ghalia Ben Ali als gast.

Het repertoire bestaat uit standards en composities van Nicolas.

De muziek zit vol passie, ritme, energie en hart.
