PIERGIORGIO PIRRO FOUR Jazz Ideals, Jazz Freedom

June 6 @ 20 h 30 min

15€ – 18€

Piergiorgio Pirro, piano
Nicolas Kummert, tenor sax
Basile Rahola, double bass
Umberto Odone, drums

 

Passionate about all aspects of the long tradition of jazz music, these four talented musicians will come together for an evening dedicated to the great composers who have shaped what we now call jazz. The quartet’s music will range from iconic standards to lesser-known gems from masters like Charles Mingus, Sam Rivers, Jackie McLean, Thelonious Monk, proposing also some original compositions.

 

Piergiorgio Pirro is a Brussels-based pianist whose work is deeply rooted in jazz, yet draws inspiration from classical and Brazilian music. Known for his versatility and innovation, he recently published “fold/unfold/refold” (AUT Records), an album that bridges new sounds coming from the 20th Century classical tradition into jazz.

Nicolas Kummert, Belgian saxophone player and researcher, has always shown curiosity, versatility, and openness to all styles of music. Having an extensive recorded production, he played in more than 50 countries worldwide, and participated in projects that span from jazz to electronics to African music.

Sam Gertsmans, Belgian bass player from Liège, studied violin and trumpet before switching to bass at 17, quickly gaining attention and collaborating with various notable jazz musicians. His extensive collaborations and participation in major jazz festivals make him one of Belgium’s most relevant bass players.

Umberto Odone is one of the most sought-after emerging young drummers in Belgium. Having started playing the drums at 6, he began his conservatory studies in Italy, then moved to Brussels for his master’s studies, graduating cum laude from the Koninklijk Conservatorium.
