Meeting great Jazzmen in the tramway…

In jazz, Jazz Clubs on June 19, 2013 at 10:01 am

Dear friends,

You have certainly met people in the street, in the bus, in the metro… You don’t know who they are but at a certain moment you begin to talk. Recognizing musicians is very easy because of their instruments. That’s what happened few days ago.

Making his European debut, guitarist Nadav Peled joins forces with fellow Israeli expat, saxophonist Maayan Smith for a hard swinging straight ahead project. These two promising young Israeli expat musicians are steadily making a name for themselves in their respective scenes. Maayan in Brussels and Nadav in The Big Apple.

I know that they play with some of the best rhythm section players on the Belgian scene because two days ago, I met a friend, Wim Eggermont,  who is a fantastic drummer, and he told me that he was playing with them.

Tonight, concert and jam session in Le Chat-Pitre at 8:30 pm (Rue Du Tabellion 1, 1050 Brussels). Do not miss it !

Here some other dates:

21.6 – Sounds 22:00 (Rue de la Tulipe 28  1050 Ixelles)
23.6 – De Hopper 16:00 (Leopold de Waelstraat 2, 2000, Antwerpen)

To give you the “taste” of the quality of their music :
“Nadav Peled is one of the very finest young guitarists playing jazz I have heard in a long time.
He has it all: sound, concept, expressiveness, technical mastery and great ears. He has a great
foundation in the history of jazz and the tools needed to go forward. He is poised to make a
great contribution to jazz guitar and to jazz music!”

In Artist of the Month, jazz, Jazz Singers of the month on June 13, 2013 at 9:56 am

Dear friends,

It’s my pleasure to announce you that a fantastic Jazz duo will share with us their new album.

Cozier & Hermans Duo have created a fabulous album which mixes perfectly the voice of Géraldine Cozier and the piano of Georges Hermans. Both of them have years of stage experience and dedicate their lives to jazz.

They revisit some standards or songs on a light atmosphere but with a very precise knowledge of all jazz codes.

Be in Brussels in the Fnac Toison d’Or on Saturday 15 June at 5.30 pm. You won’t be disappointed !

It’s new, it’s fresh, it’s excellent !

Here is the link of their site on which you can listen to their brilliant duo:
