Jazz guitarist Philip Catherine is one of the few Belgian musicians who don't need an introduction. He has been a prominent figure on the European jazz scene since the 1960s. His collaborations with various jazz stars (Chet Baker, Tom Harrell, Stéphane Grappelli, Dexter Gordon, Charles Mingus
), his unique style and sound, and his unbridled dedication to music have been a major influence on the development of European jazz.
The big band has been the flagship of the jazz section of LUCA School of Arts for many years. Led by Frank Vaganée (Brussels Jazz Orchestra), the orchestra has collaborated with numerous international soloists (Peter Herbolzheimer, Michel Herr, Bert Joris
) over the past 25 years. On this occasion, they play arrangements by Bert Joris together with Philip Catherine.
