Two quiet weeks and then we’ll see the arrival of the American trio without musical limits. House of Waters will provide the club with a mix of global sounds! “It isn’t just rap, or hip hop, or jazz, or soul, but it has all of that. It’s an amorphous thing. It’s how the future is going to be. “

The weekend after that, during Brussels Jazz Weekend, Boggamasta & Glü will be putting their best foot forward in the Main Hall. Boggamasta, consisting of – count them – 16 members, presents their own direct, energetic and crazy music to AB.

Fast forward to the winter! If Bon Iver says that Colin Stetson is one of the best saxophone players of our time, then we really must believe it. The way in which Stetson plays tenor sax instantly reminds one of free jazz grandmasters like Evan Parker, Peter Brötzmann and Anthony Braxton. Stetson about his sax: “It’s been around the world, has touched the sand of the Sahara and has played for over a million people.”
