Nordmann is taking Belgium by storm.
Their mixture of jazz, rock and creative experiment driven by an unique sound and energy is set to make them a favourite on the Belgian live circuit. Nordmannís restless rhythms and grinding grooves alternate with intimate soundscapes and open improvisation.
The band formed two yearsí ago in Ghent, where the four young musicians were students. They refined and matured their idiosyncratic style and jazz contest successes quickly followed. Winners of the Belgian Muziekmozaiek Jazz Contest 2012 and the Storm! Jazzwedstrijd 2013, Nordmann took third place in the prestigious international jazz contest at Jazz Hoeilaart 2013.
The compositions are off-the-wall, home-baked creations that go from desert-rock to avant-garde but all with their distinctive sound. The playing is daring, sometimes explosive but always honest and often with a quirky sense of humour. Nordmannís debut album will be recorded in 2014 and released by De Werf.
