Recording with the BJO!

Hello everyone!
We are very excited because yesterday we recorded for Frank Vaganée on his piece “Two Small Bags and Ten Million Dreams”. The song features our long time friend and teacher David Linx as well as Tutu Puoane and the Brussels Jazz Orchestra.
We had such a great time recording the music, hanging out with David and meeting the crew of ACE Studio in Aartselaart. The song will be for sale on the BJO’s website in the near future and the funds gathered around the sales will go to support groups for refugees. We will perform the piece on June 20th at the Ancienne Belgique.
Great things happening!

Working on Modern Tales

Hello everyone!
We just finished a 4 day residency working on our new project called “Modern Tales”. Moritz Baumgärtner came all the way from Berlin to work with us on the music of John Hollenbeck. So far the music is pretty wild! We also had a visit from Roger Vantilt who took some nice pictures of the band.
In other news, we are performing next week at The Music Village on Thursday March 10th! Don’t miss it! We are also working on a recording session with the BJO for a concert later in June!
Great things happening!
