New jazz club in Brussels (Belgium): The BRAVO!!!

In Few written notes, Jazz Clubs on April 22, 2014 at 10:19 pm

Dear friends,

It’s my pleasure to announce you the opening of a great jazz place in Brussels (Belgium). Some Belgian jazz musicians told me how great it was to play in this place because they are considered as the quintessence of the magic of this club.

I only found the facebook page : but you can also find some elements on this page too (in French):

The jazz club is located in the underground and seems to be terrific. I promise to visit this place as soon as possible :-).

The strange sounds of Sophie Tassignon and Peter Van Huffel

In Artist of the Month, Few written notes, Jazz Clubs, Jazz Singers of the month on February 13, 2014 at 10:44 am

Dear friends,

For those who really like music without borders, in danger, deconstructed and recomposed to try some new sounds, please become fan of Sophie Tassignon and Peter Van Huffel. Sophie is well known for her impressive solos and improvisations that break the codes.

Their new CD “House of Mirrors” is composed by <<a myriad of tones and timbres, multiplied, fragmented, and re-sequenced like some devil’s DNA. Peter Van Huffel and Sophie Tassignon’s creations move through the nexus of centuries-old traditions and spur-of-the-moment impulse.  Within, there’s jazz, there’s the 20th century chamber music of Schoenberg and Webern, and the contrapuntal free improv of Bailey, Parker, and von Schlippenbach. The old stones in this garden speak of long-lost Eastern European folk tunes, the Weimar cabaret of Weill and Brecht, and of the tales of a forest canopy and the burrowing creatures beneath>>- Dave Wayne (Santa Fe, NM, USA)


This new CD is the result of the art of great musicians:

Sophie Tassignon (B) – voice
Peter Van Huffel (CAN) – clarinet, alto & soprano saxophones

Julie Sassoon (UK) – piano
Miles Perkin (CAN) – bass

Have a look at this link on YouTube but be prepared to hear something new :-). 

Enjoy and discover,


P.S.: If you travel and stop in Brussels on March 13, you will have the immense pleasure to listen to Sophie and her friend Suzanne singing on folk atmosphere. They will be at the Music village presenting “Folk Tassignon“.

A small precious Jazz club in Paris : La cave du 38 Riv’

In Jazz Clubs on April 6, 2013 at 9:49 pm

Dear friends,

There are not so many places which combine my love for medieval history and for jazz. La cave du 38 Riv’ in Paris in one of them.

I have the huge pleasure to present you this little gem, situated in the heart of the “Marais” in a 12th century cellar, the Paris secret soul.

Under the direction of Vincent Charbonnier (double bass player from 1984 to 1997), this venue has the warmth of a owner who knows what jazz is and who respects the artists !

Every Monday, from 6.30 pm, it’s time for amateurs, beginners, shy people. From 8.30 pm, professional musicians are on the stage.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, concerts of “other” Jazz styles (Contemporary, Manouche/gipsy, Bossa, World Jazz)

On Thurday, from 8.30 pm, unplugged jazz, without mic, without ampli.

On Friday, from 9 pm, Jazz concert, and from 10.30 pm, Jam session open for all.

On Sunday, another music type : Baroque at 5 pm with tea and sweets :-).

I hope you will find the time to visit this place and to enjoy the program.
