Jens Maurits Bouttery: when a young jazz drummer steals the show…

In Artist of the Month, jazz on June 9, 2014 at 4:39 pm

Dear friends,

It’s my pleasure to share with you a portrait of a young Belgian jazz drummer, because when an excellent drummer steals the show, it has to be underlined ! ūüôā

Born in Belgium in 1988, he has completed his master degree in 2011 in the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, but before ending his studies, he already won the 2nd price of Dexia Classics Contest for percussion (2006)! Five years later, he also won the price for best solo player at the Brussels Jazz Marathon XLJazz Contest 2011 and finally the Toots Thielemans Jazz Award 2011 for school career and final project ‚ÄúThe Dubtapes‚ÄĚ.

Winning awards is a good thing but setting fire on the stage requires great art that Jens obtained with is double formation: theater (he won also several awards in this art).

Now just listen to him and enjoy !

Judy Niemack with het trio, Jeanfrançois Prins, Bart De Nolf and Bruno Castellucci, will sing Autumn in Blue.

As the Fall season brings cool nights and deeper shades of blue, Judy will explore November’s colors in evenings of beautiful ballads, swinging blues and modern jazz. With her trio, they will warm your hearts with the golden glow of Autumn…
