Colson-Vergaert 5TET

The Music Village Rue des Pierres 50 Steenstraat, Brussels, Belgium

Tribute to Horace Silver
 

Seba Colson (trumpet), Nero Vergaert (tenor saxophone),
Milan Verbist (piano), Toon Rumen (double bass),
Simon Van Brandt (drums)

 

The Colson-Vergaert Quintet is a jazz quintet founded by five young jazz musicians who met in the hallways of the Conservatory of Antwerp.

These young jazz cats love to play hard bop and on the 7th of april, they will celebrate one of their favourite composers in the genre: Horace Silver.

Sister's legacy as a composer may be greater than as a pianist, because his works, many of which are now jazz standards, continue to be performed and recorded worldwide. As a composer, he led a return to an emphasis on melody.

In 1954, pianist Horace Silver teamed with drummer Art Blakey to form a cooperative ensemble that would combine the dexterity and power of bebop with the midtempo, down-home grooves of blues and gospel music. The results are what would become known as hard bop, and The Jazz Messengers were one of the leading exponents of this significant era in jazz history. In all, the music Horace Silver is the very definition of a style that dominated jazz in the 1950s and '60s.

 

As Art Blakey would say it: ‘Take of your shoes and have a ball !’

In Jazz Times, Christopher Louden wrote: "Vocally, he suggests a blend of his father Ben with a touch of Donald Fagen. His relaxed and fluid style is reminiscent of Bob Dorough."   25 years into his artistic career, Sidran continues to explore new possibilities in his work.
