Carte blanche for Brussels improv/jazz label Rat Records
AB is proud to present THE NEW WAVE OF BELGIAN JAZZ!: a fantastic five-dayer to conclude the successful JAZZ 100 series. We focus on the latest generation of musicians from The Contemporary National Jazz Scene, for whom jazz is more of a mentality than a genre.
Brussels label Rat Records – an abbreviation for Rare And Treacherous – is the label of founder Teun Verbruggen (Flat Earth Society, ex-Jef Neve Trio). His mission: more visibility for free jazz and the improve scène – the same goals Teun also aims for in his workplace ‘Walter’ in Anderlecht. Rat Records consistently issues exciting releases – about 30 to date – with an assortment of impressive (inter)national musicians from the likes of Mauro Pawlowski or Lynn Cassiers to Norwegian connections Stian Westerhus and Arve Henriksen.
8:00 pm – 8:30 pm:
Fréderik Leroux gains his inspiration not only from jazz but also from minimalism, surrealism and free improvisation. The workshops he followed at the New School University with jazz icons like Joe Lovano, John Scofield, Steve Coleman and Mark Turner inspired him too. With his banjo (and by means of tape delay), Leroux explores the endless possibilities of his instrument. This results in romantic Ennio Morricone –like melodies to experimental soundscapes.
Line-up: Fréderik Leroux (banjo & tape delay)
8:45 pm– 9:30 pm
DUO À L’ENCRE: TEUN VERBRUGGEN & BONOM MEETS JOZEF DUMOULIN & LYNN CASSIERS
Brussels graffiti artist Bonom is definitely this evening’s most surprising guest. It is hard to imagine the streets of Brussels without his black+white drawings of spiders and skeletons, and since he took off his mask at the end of ’11 he has moved his activities from the street to the stage. Duo à l’Encre is a cross-pollination of image and music that approaches each other via improvisation. For this performance the duo expands into quartet with trusted friends from Teun’s entourage, Jozef Dumoulin and Lynn Cassiers.
Line-up: Teun Verbruggen (drums), Vincent ‘Bonom’ Glowinski (drawings), Jozef Dumoulin (keys), Lynn Cassiers (vocals)
9:45 pm– 10:45 pm:
CHASING PENGUINS (VERBRUGGEN/FERNANDES QUINTET)
Absolutely no idea why the penguin is hip in jazz circles – check out: GoGo Penguin, the label Evil Penguin, … – but brand new quintet Chasing Penguins certainly enriches that collection. In his never ending search for new collaborations, this time Verbruggen is working with Portuguese guitarist Andre Fernandes who was a member of the Lee Konitz Nonet for a while and in the band of singer Maria João. The Verbruggen/Fernandes Quintet can – with the addition of saxophonist Steven Dellanoye, pianist Nicola Delooze and with bassist Nathan Wouters – certainly count on a dreamed of line-up.
Line-up: André Fernandes (guitar), Nicola Andrioli (piano) , Steven Dellanoye (sax) , Nathan Wouters (bass) , Teun Verbruggen (drums)
