Kris Defoort’s Diving Poet Society (cd-release)

Since it was formed in 2010, the Kris Defoort Trio has grown into an established name in Belgian jazz. How could it be otherwise, with bassist Nicolas Thys and drummer Lander Gyselinck on board?

Now, with two outstanding guests, they are aiming for a completely new form of poetry: the magical world of the Dutch writer Peter Verhelst.
