Belgian Jazz Now * day 2


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?

Jean-Paul Estiévenart Trio feat. Fabian Fiorini 


On the menu: swing, rock ‘n roll, ambient, blues and abstract sounds; sultry, exotic, uplifting grooves; stimulating melodies; intense, whisper-quiet sometimes, nocturnal spheres; sporadic flares of musical frenzy; firm and challenging teamwork; focus, intensity and sincere musical zest.
