Belgian Jazz Now * day 1
4 x Belgian jazz talent
There is a lot of talent on Belgian soil, with a rich selection of jazz artists from both Flanders and Wallonia. This two-day showcase festival offers a varied overview.
Also on this second day, four bands take to the stage, with 40 minutes of play time to give the best of themselves. Join the audience of international programmers. Which band blows you over?

Eve Beuvens-Mikael Godée Quartet
it’s a hike in a Far North forest coloured by flakes full of startling colours
The Wrong Object
adept at mixing Canterbury styled prog rock with Zappa-esque jazz fusion and Frippertronics to produce a beat that has elements of the past and the future thundering through it.
Lynn Cassiers’ Imaginary Band
Sanders arranges the fieldrecordings, gathered in Indonesia, with great esteem, and deduces them to a fresh, tasty and sometimes invigorating cup of musical gold.
Within the framework of Belgian Jazz Meeting 2019, an initiative of Kunstenpunt, JazzLab, Handelsbeurs Concertzaal, KAAP, Museact and Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques, with financial support of Vlaamse Gemeenschap, Stad Gent, Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, Sabam and Wallonie-Bruxelles International
