A new breath for Saxkartel
Saxkartel always occupied a special place in the ‘Belgian house of jazz’. Chamber music, an uncommon line-up, Jazz that grooves without a rhythm section … Does that sound like a contradiction? Saxkartel already proved in the past that the answer to that question is ‘no’.
Today Tom Van Dyck takes the quartet a step further: (organized) atonality and asymmetrical grooves have become important ingredients in the new repertoire. And let it be clear: there's a lot of composition to it, but these compositions only start a real life when spiced with solo's from the four of them.
