The Brussels Jazz Festival has become the regular meeting point for jazz lovers at the beginning of each new year. As usual, you can come and enjoy jazz in all its facets for ten days.
The festival returns to live audiences with an electrifying line-up. The Bill Frisell Trio will open the festival together with Brussels Philharmonic as part of the ‘Jazz Meets Symphonic' series; trumpeter Jean-Paul Estiévenart- artist in residence at the festival- will get carte blanche and presents no less than three brand new projects; a focus on contemporary female jazz artists such as Tania Giannouli, Emma-Jean Thackray, Chelsea Carmichael and Muriel Grossman; and world-famous artists such as Jakob Bro, Avishai Cohen and Kamaal Williams.
As is our custom every year, we invite young Belgian artists to present their new music or their latest albums. This year's guests include De Beren Gieren, GingerblackGinger, Lara Rosseel Band and some special artists connected to the Aspen Label.
Even when the music stops, the festival continues. The festival's film programme will feature the legendary Toots Thielemans and there will be jazzy activities for children. Evenings will end with DJs and young jazz talent dancing.
