What if you ask artist in residence Jean-Paul Estiévenart to put together his dream team? Then he surprises with a group of internationally acclaimed musicians and a brand new repertoire. His dream team consists on the one hand of the American established values saxophonist Mark Turner and Jeff Ballard on drums, and on the other hand of the brilliant Belgian pianist Bram de Looze and the Dutch bassist Clemens van der Feen, both musicians with whom Estiévenart has been making music for years. The music Jean-Paul wrote for this concert represents everything that typifies him as a musician: lyrical, powerful and unique.

Within the traditional formula of an acoustic quintet, he manages to transform his pure melodies into pieces of contemporary improvisation, bursting in all directions. The result will appeal to jazzfans from the 50s and 60s as well as to melodic music lovers. Vers L'Avenir.

He knows how to draw the intersection between the past and the present of Jazz in a purely acoustic way. Jazzenzo

Estiévenart, who wrote all the music, gives a lot of space to the members of his group. But in the end, he himself makes the greatest impression: subtle trumpet player, strong compositions. De Standaard

And whoever thought it was only harmony and melody would be disappointed. Improvisation always plays a leading role in the music of this incredible Belgian trumpet player. Jazz Nu
