DISNEY MEETS JAZZ

 

Hanne Vansant (vocals), Mathieu De Wit (piano), Julien Fraipont (bass),
Jonathan Taylor (drums)

 

Over the years, Walt Disney’s movies and their music touched the hearts of entire generations and got engraved in our collective memory. Disney’s music was always greatly influenced by the period of time in which the films were made. Jazz was an inevitable source of inspiration. The movies and their music’s rich history inspired this Belgian jazz quartet to tackle the immortal Disney repertoire. They selected songs from 10 of Disney’s earlier masterpieces made between 1941 and 1989. They jazzed up the repertoire with the utmost respect for the original written music, but gave it their own interpretation nonetheless. Jazz meets Disney or Disney meets Jazz?

Julien Cuvelier (tenor sax, clarinet),
Julien Delbrouck (barytone sax, bass clarinet), Raphaël Hallez (trumpet), Antoine Marcel (trumpet), Timothé Lemaire (trombone), JB Guerrier (bass), Daniel Duchateau (drums)

 

 

Created in Brussels in 2017, the HLBB is the result of nocturnal encounters during after hours jam sessions at Bar Herman and Stompin'At Saint Gilles. The eleven musicians of this "small" large ensemble share their passion for Django Reinhardt, Stéphane Grappelli, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Mary Lou Williams and many others. The ensemble is characterized in particular by the interpretation of original arrangements written by the various members of the band but also by an atypical orchestration where violin and accordion dialogue with woodwinds and brass.

While continuing their exploration of the repertoire of the "Swing Era", they are currently deepening a repertoire entirely dedicated to the singularity of the work of the fabulous gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt: "Swinging with Django".

Rahona

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels

From African Music to Jazz

 

Manuel Hermia (tenor sax), Julien Marga (guitar), Joël Rabesolo (guitar),
Nicolas Puma (bass), Lucas Vanderputten (drums)

 

At the origin of Rahona - which means clouds in Malagasy - there is the meeting between two guitarists with roots as different as complementary, Joël Rabesolo and Julien Marga. The immediate understanding between the two musicians and their will to create a two-guitars quintet, let a strong sound identity emerge, which became the cornerstone of Rahona. The compositions chosen for their first album reveal the facets of each musician in the project: from African music to contemporary jazz and film music, Rahona plays with its influences (Bill Frisell, John Scofield, Charlie Haden...) throughout a poetic album, brilliantly illuminated by the melodic phrases of the saxophonist Manuel Hermia.

Julien Marga (guitar), Geoffrey Fiorese (piano), Jim Monneau (bass),

Trained at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and active on the Belgian and French scene for several years, the guitarist Julien Marga is indeed to be placed in the "promising new blood" category.

"Hypnosis", the latest album of his quartet released in October 2017, is a record of great coherence, focusing on the sound of the band and highlighting a keen sense of melody. Julien Marga plays a subtle, elegant jazz, tinged with Afro-American and Malagasy influences.

A blend of taste and aesthetics that is reminiscent of some illustrious guitar leaders such as John Scofield or Bill Frisell. In the background of each composition, the influence of the ECM label and its sense of space.

Tribute to Jacob do Bandolim – Brazilian Music

 

 

Thibault Dille (accordion, mellotone), Marcos Della Rocha (percussion),
Benoit Minon (guitar),
Pierre Gillet (guitar)

 

NaPraça is a quartet of instrumental Brazilian music specialized in choro.

Jacob do Bandolim (1918-1969) was a brilliant composer and mandolinist from Rio De Janeiro. He wrote more than hundreds of choros that are still played today and are part of the common Brazilian repertoire. Considered as a perfectionist, he required a very high level of commitment and virtuosity from his musicians. Many of his tunes are reminiscent of the bebop era while preserving at the same time the choro tradition and instrumentation.

NaPraça will interpret an excerpt of his tunes mixing virtuosity, tradition and modern improvisation.

"Dialogue, interaction and nuance are the founding parameters of their identity.

In their compositions, the melody holds an almost obsessive place, especially since being a group without "harmonic instrument" (double bass/tenor sax/drums), it is suggested by the intermingling of the voices of the three instruments.

Through our concerts, we propose you to enter our original universe, a journey mixed with jazz, improvised and actual music."

Casimir Liberski ReTRio

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels

A jazz tribute to the retro video game music

 

Casimir Liberski (piano), Jérôme Colleyn (drums), Janos Bruneel (bass)

 

 

"Casimir, Janos and Jérôme are childhood friends who gave their first jazz trio concerts in Brussels twenty years ago. After many - musical and personal - trials and tribulations, they found each other again (ReTRio!) during the strange Covid interlude to perfect the Zelda Suite Project, which remained close to their hearts from the beginning. The idea was to take historical (retro!) video game themes and give them a jazz or even 'free jazz" spin, following Ornette Coleman's "harmolodic" approach. Fascinated by the cleverness of these catchy electronic tunes, that manage to stay in your head without ever getting boring, Casimir is taking his ReTRio on an atypical journey of acoustic, constantly evolving, jazz. These singular interpretations of video game themes portray Casimir's unique style and contemporary approach to a wide array of musical styles."

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels

Followed by our JAZZ JAM SESSION

 

 

Guillaume Malempré (drums, compositions), Téo Crommen (guitar),
Geoffrey Fiorese (piano), Boris Schmidt (bass)

 

The Spring Sound Project is a music project mixing jazz and traditional Bulgarian folk songs. The idea was born in the midst of the first lockdown in the spring of 2020 : at first this long "pause" was unwanted but it became in fact a time of creation. The project gathers personal pieces and Bulgarian music arrangements. This heritage of traditional music comes from a book that was passed down by Guillaume's grand-father. The Spring Sound Project's music falls within jazz improvisation, with well-defined moments fixed by the music sheet and where the musicians have the space to interact with each other.

World’s Famous tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton & Johan Clement Trio

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels

SCOTT HAMILTON (tenor sax), Johan Clement (piano), Bart De Nolf (bass),
Luc Vanden Bosch (drums)

 

Scott Hamilton was born in 1954, in Providence, Rhode Island. During his early childhood he heard a lot of jazz through his father’s extensive record collection, and became acquainted with the jazz greats. He tried out several instruments, including drums at about the age of five, piano at six and mouth-organ. He had some clarinet lessons when he was about eight years of age, but that was the only formal music tuition he has ever had. Even at that age he was attracted to the sound of Johnny Hodges, but it was not until he was about sixteen that he started playing the saxophone seriously. From his playing mainly blues on mouth organ, his little band gradually became more of a jazz band.

He moved to New York in 1976 at the age of twenty-two, and through Roy Eldridge, with whom he had played a year previously in Boston, got a six-week gig at Michael’s Pub. Roy also paved the way for him to work with Anita O’Day and Hank Jones. Although it was the tail-end of the of old New York scene, a lot of the greats were still playing and he got to work and learn from people like Eldridge, Illinois Jacquet, Vic Dickenson and Jo Jones. Eldridge was Scott’s champion, but pulled no punches, and could be extremely critical, something for which Scott has always been grateful. In December of the same year John Bunch got Scott his first recording date, for Famous Door, and was also responsible for him joining Benny Goodman. He continued to work with Goodman at different times until the early 1980s.

In 1977 he formed his own quartet, which later became a quintet, with Bunch added to the group. The same year Carl Jefferson heard him, and began recording him for his Concord record label. More than forty albums later he is still recording for them, having made many under his own leadership, several with his regular British quartet of John Pearce, Dave Green and Steve Brown, including his latest, Nocturnes & Serenades. The Quartet plus two guests, Dave Cliff and Mark Nightingale recorded Our Delight! for Alan Barnes’ Woodville label. A new release, Across the Tracks on Concorde is due this May. Along the way he has made albums with Dave McKenna, Jake Hanna, Woody Herman, Tony Bennett, Gerry Mulligan, Flip Phillips, Maxine Sullivan, Buddy Tate, Warren Vache, many with Rosemary Clooney and a number with another of his mentors, Ruby Braff, with whom he played residencies at the Pizza Express Jazz Club, London in the mid-1980s. Over the years Scott has also performed and recorded with such touring bands as the Concord Jazz All Stars, the Concord Super Band and George Wein’s Newport Jazz Festival All Stars.

For some years he was based in London, where he first played in 1978, but now travels the world from Italy. Each year, in addition to two or three residencies with the quartet at the Pizza Express Jazz Club, British jazz club dates and festival work including Brecon, where he is one of the patrons, he regularly tours Germany, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Japan, Spain and Italy. He returns to America three or four times a year to play at festivals, including in 2007, the New York JVC festival in June and Irvine, California in September, and in February 2008 for three nights at the Lincoln Centre New York.

His playing has best been described by fellow tenor saxophonist and writer, Dave Gelly: “Following a Scott Hamilton solo is like listening to a great conversationalist in full flow. First comes the voice, the inimitable, assured sound of his tenor saxophone, then the informal style and finally the amazing fluency and eloquent command of the jazz language.” Scott was awarded the ‘Ronnie’ for International Jazz Saxophonist of the Year in the 2007 inaugural Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Awards.  It is no wonder that Scott Hamilton is in demand the world over.

Schmidt & Salemi

 

Martin Salemi (piano), Boris Schmidt (bass)

 

Martin Salemi and Boris Schmidt first met in Brussels at jamsessions a few years ago. Since then they've collaborated in several jazz and world music projects. Soon after Schmidt invited Salemi to join his quartet for a special anniversary concert presenting his album “Now", the favour was returned when Salemi chose his rhythm section for his new trio album “About Time” with Daniel Jonkers on drums. This record was published in 2021 on IGLOO Records followed by a national tour.

Their complicity and shared love of a varied repertoire has motivated them to play in duo and push their musical conversation to the next level. Their concerts combine original compositions  by both as well as some jazz standards and South American traditionals.

Boris Schmidt (bass/compositions), Bruno van der Haegen (sax, clarinet),
Lorenzo Dimaio (guitar), Lionel Beuvens (drums)

 

Originally from Luxembourg but now based in Brussels, Belgium, this bassplayer who has been a sideman for many years, finally takes the time to present his own compositions in an acoustic jazz quartet setting. Enriched by his international experience with widely varied styles of music, he now makes his mark in a modern, melodic jazz style with nods to blues, baroque and of course the great american songbook and swing. Enter a world where each note is light, subtle and round. Wrapped in apparent nonchalance, great attention to detail and precision confer a feeling of harmony and calm strength to the experience. His first solo album “Now” was released december 2018 on belgian label Homerecords.

Laurent Doumont (sax), Lorenzo Di Maio (guitar), Cédric Raymond (bass),

In the spring of 2020, the world was slowed down and we were kindly asked to stay home. All venues were closed and live music had to find its way through our computers. Meanwhile, Laurent used the time to go back to the basics : more practise and writing music. Soon the new compositions formed a repertoire that would suit perfectly the soulful sax-guitar-bassdrums quartet, an all time Laurent’s favorite. As soon as things were back on track, he called his go-to-guys for a try out and, guess what ? Perfect match ! « Meanwhile » is Laurent Doumont’s new Soul-Jazz quartet, playing their first gig at Music Village on 2 Nov 2022. Would you like to witness the birth?

New project : GHS Acoustik Band featuring Oscar Georges

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels

Followed by our Jazz Jam Session 

 

 

GHS is a Brussels based band created in 2018 around three musicians and friends who met in the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.The trio originated from Gilad Hekselman’s idea of a« bassless trio » , substituing the instrument with down octaving effects on the guitar and synthetising bass on

keyboard. The artistic direction of the band grew away from that first inspiration, as the influences of their teachers and mentors from the famous belgian trio Aka Moon took over, in deeply connected improvisations and rythmical games, tainted with jazz fusion sonorities.

The band recorded last year a first album which is about to get released, figuring compositions of every members, and a cover from Aka Moon. For this special occasion in the Music Village, GHS will be playing their compositions in a more standard setting, with Oscar Georges on double bass as a special guest.
