Scotland meets Belgium : Thrill ! Sextet
Scotland meets Belgium @ Brussels Jazz Festival
Sunday 13.01.2019 - 17:00 @ Flagey, Studio 1
A new band is packed with super-talented musicians from both Brussels and Scotland. They’ll deliver beautiful, lyrical melodies, improvisations of great maturity, inspired by ECM’s blending of folk, jazz and classical worlds. Expect driving compositional power and thrilling range.
In the spirit of the Criss Cross Europe, Brussels and Edinburgh join forces around a first collaboration highlighting jazz. A carte blanche is given to two leaders representing each region: the Brussels saxophonist Tom Bourgeois and the Scottish bassist Mark Hendry. They surround themselves with musicians from different backgrounds. The six musicians of this new project represent the freshness of a thriving European jazz scene. A unique opportunity for these musicians to exchange, weave new links and present their compositions and arrangements. An artistic bet raised with brio!
