Antoine Lissoir (sax alto / clarinet), Julien Gillain (piano), Maxim Malkomes (bass),Laurent Vigneron (drums)

 

The Wild Jazz Band aspires to share Jelly Roll Morton's style with its audience (he was one of the New Orleans jazz pioneers), but, most of all, it wishes to share the so-called "jungle" universe, perfectly represented by Duke Ellington. Most of the tunes were written for Big Bands and have been rearranged for this septet. So, get ready to (re)discover a multitude of sonorities with saxophones/clarinets and brasses loaded with a pile of mutes.

These seven musicians fell in love with the music of Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Clark Terry. They find their joy in playing swing like it is meant to be played. With their own arrangements, they tempt to approach a big band sound. But besides that, they also know how to play in a smooth way and keep up the old, dusty atmosphere. Birdie Bounce has its roots in the bouncing heart of Ghent, Belgium. Amongst their experiences: swing parties in Ghent, Brussels, Antwerp and Rotterdam; the lindy hop society has no secrets for this band.
