Jukwaa / Lynn Cassiers' Imaginary Band (cd-releases)

powerful, subdued


Jukwaa consists of the pianist Thijs Troch, bassist Nils Vermeulen and drummer Sigfried Burroughs. Since 2013 they have been looking for possible new directions in jazz. 

As if they did not already have enough talent, for their new album (Smeraldina-rima) they have brought in reinforcements.

Lynn Cassiers' Imaginary Band

The singer Lynn Cassiers chose her favourite musicians for her Imaginary Band and they are now presenting their new record. 

It includes the musical figurehead Eric Vermeulen and the euphonium-player Niels Van Heertum.

(...) my expectations towards the music were accompanied by a fear that the group’s originality might somehow be lost in muddy bass sounds and percussion overkill. Fortunately, I could not have been more wrong. Instead, the sounds that meet me make me question what double bass, drums and piano really are, and what they can possibly be.
