Get to the heart of things. This is the promise of this Quintet.
Tell each other all there is to say. Let ideas come and go, back and forth, without hiding anything, spontaneously and sincerely.
The band is determined to keep the spontaneity of a first meeting and the freshness of the first dialogues. Never disrupt the flow of a passionate conversation.

Like a breath of fresh air, spontaneous, with intimate atmospheric sounds culminating in powerful rhythms and brilliant rock riffs.

With Adam O'Farrill, one of New York's most prominent trumpet player of the moment!

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.

Serendip Quartet is a band led by saxophonist Arnaud Guichard. Their repertoire is all original compositions inspired by narratives creating a very intimate and unique universe. A journey through Spiritual, Afro, Free and contemporary jazz. They have released two albums between 2018 and 2021. The first album the Tale is inspired by the Persian tale The three Princes of Serendip and melodically describes characters of the tale. Queen of Fire, their most recent release, narrates the healing journey of a woman survivor of sexual assault as a weapon of war. It is dedicated to the victims of the attacks happening in the Democratic Republic of Congo and to the Dr Denis Mukwege who helps the survivors to recover from these atrocities.

FUR tends towards purity. 

The exploration of sound landscapes with unexpected widths is done at will. The path is cultivated in three and the improvisation always renews the route. This trio knows very well what it is going to tell you but it does not know yet how it is going to tell you, it discovers it with you, as it goes along.

Depuis 2020, Mortelle randonnée parcourt le répertoire de la compositrice américaine Carla Bley, plus particulièrement de la période où elle collaborait avec le trompettiste Michael Mantler (70’s à milieu 80’s). De cette période est également née la chanteuse et multi-instrumentiste Karen Mantler, fille des sus-nommés, elle même auteur de cinq albums de chansons faussement naïves, petites pépites avant-pop ciselées dans la même veine familiale. En 2023, Mortelle randonnée invite Karen Mantler à ré-arranger sa propre musique, en français s’il vous plait et en regard des musiques de Carla Bley qu’elle joue depuis son enfance
