Backback plays Ellington: 'DEUK'
The flamboyant Ghent trio Backback explores the zone between jazz, rock and burly grooves. The solid riffs of Filip Wauters and the roaring sax of Marc De Maeseneer go together seamlessly with the nuanced and unbridled playing of master drummer Giovanni Barcella. Their fifth album will be released in the autumn, consisting of hidden gems from Duke Ellington's oeuvre.
Don Kapot equals groove, groove and more groove. Of the physical, rousing kind. Drummer Jakob Warmenbol and bassist Giotis Damianidis played with Oghene Kologbo's Worrld Squad, an Afrobeat sensation from Brussels. Together with baritone saxophonist Viktor Perdieus, they build on the work of Tony Allen, Fela Kuti and Kologbo.
