Donderdag 10 mei:

15.00 – 17.00: Orlando
20.30 – 22.30: The Professionalz.

De Brusselse saxofonist Toine Thys komt zijn nieuwe internationale band Orlando voorstellen. Met musici uit de Parijse en Brusselse jazzscène brengt hij muziek waarbij prikkelende energie wordt afgewisseld met virtuoze rustigere passages. Toine Thys liet zich voor deze groep inspireren door zijn reizen in de Balkan en in Afrika.
Toine Thys (B): tenor/soprano saxophones.
Maxime Sanchez (FR): piano.
Florent Nisse (FR): double bass.
Antoine Pierre (B): drums

The Professionalz.
As much as we enjoy the technical freedom of modern studio techniques, and enjoy the freedom it provides us as being expressive jazz musicians, we wanted to see what would happen if we would give ourselves the time limitation as in the ‘old days’. We thought it would be a challenge and an adventure to see how things would work out using this time and technical limitation in today’s jazz recording process. To try to tell a well rounded, to the point, musical story in a limited amount of time. A little miniature if you like.
Lucas van Merwijk: drums.
Ed Verhoeff: gitaar.
Arno Krijger: hammond.
