Before we continue aiming high this 4th edition and will present again an ambitious and varied program. With the phenomenal Cécile McLorin Salvant and stunning James Brandon Lewis Harelbeke we get to a world star and a rising star. Two young, powerful voices with great respect for the jazz tradition but above its own identity and a unique, modern interpretation. Our Belgian Philip Catherine proudly celebrates its 75th anniversary with a unique concert with top bass player Martin Wind. The "Moderato Cantabile" by Anja Lechner & François Couturier guarantees a magical evening at the Saint Augustine church. A good preparation for this top concerts we take an extra concert BLOW trio Youth Salamander, the film "What Happened, Miss Simone" and the jazz class course.

James Brandon Lewis Trio
Blue Hall (Jazz Club) - upright

Rarely was at the North Sea Jazz Festival (2016), an artist acclaimed as enthusiastic as the New York based tenor saxophonist James Brandon Lewis. His trio with Luke Stewart (electric bass) and Warren Crudup (drums) mixes free jazz with hip-hop, so fresh and inspired the hall is always perfectly flat. In reviews often refer to John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman. Their sound is not only weighty and majestic, but also playful, funky and permeated with gospel.

"Mesmerizing, catchy music and physical. Regular subdued and emotionally strong, but never syrupy, sometimes with a huge funky drive. "(, Guy Peters)

" James Brandon Lewis If you have only a few notes should play, you forget his name never ... (JazzNU .com, Rinus van der Heijden)

"... one of the most exciting and progressive jazz ensembles lately ... a steaming and reckless adventure ..." (Turn your ears. Louis Obbens)

Phenomenal and working on a steep rise not miss..
