Since 2006, the Jazz Station Big Band is the house band of the Jazz Station, a famous club in Brussels.
The group has developed a very distinctive sound and has become paramount to the Belgian scene. Its repertoire is daring, and borrows at times from the jazz giants (Monk, Mingus...), adding up its own special flavors.
The JSBB is made of accomplished soloists, among which are its own arrangers.
“The Jazz Station Big Band proves to be one of the most promising ensembles in Europe. The writing is ingenious and ambitious and the arragements are deep and meaningful. Their astute use of odd time signatures, metric modulations and free improvisation keeps the listener engaged and interested but there’s also great lyricism, simplicity and beauty in their work. Definitely a high quality release from an ensemble that has unlimited potential” Antonio Sanchez (drummer of the Pat Metheny Group and composer for the soundtrack of Birdman, Academy Award recipient for Best Picture, 2015).
