Singer Lynn Cassiers was invited by Brosella Folk & Jazz Festival to compose for Carte Blanche Jazz (9/7).
She has been dreaming of her own band in which she fills the role of artistic director for a while.
So, for the occasion, she invited Alexandra Grimal (sax), Ananta Roossens (violin & trumpet), Niels Van Heertum (euphonium), Erik Vermeulen (piano), Manolo Cabras (double bass) and Marek Patrman (drums) to form septet 'Imaginary Band'.
She will take charge of the compositions.
Expect a unique mix of voice and electronics with an acoustic ensemble, in which rhythmic and harmonic jazz structures are placed in soundscapes and texture improvisations.
It will charm every jazz lover! Now that 'Imaginary Band' is born, Lynn would like to take the opportunity to record a CD, linked with a series of concerts (spring 2018).
