The Brussels Jazz Orchestra recorded his project "We have a dream" feat. vocalist Tutu Puoane
The year 2018 will mark the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s assassination. Brussels Jazz Orchestra will commemorate his death with a musical production around the theme of human rights. "We have a dream" will present new arrangements of great pop, rock, soul and jazz songs. Singer Tutu Puoane, from Antwerp with South African roots, will sing with a raised fist, an indictment – a call for justice.
Blues, reggae, folk, rock, hip-hop and jazz are beloved genres for songs about injustice, a rich tradition of the protest song. From Stevie Wonder to Marvin Gaye, from Nina Simone to Sting, from Rod Stewart to Donny Hathaway, each and every one is a powerful song about injustice, oppression or inequality.
New arrangements by Michel Herr, Bert Joris, Gyuri Spies..
Album to be released in January 2018. Concerning the BJO, let us remind you that their Brel album with David Linx received an Edison Award in the Netherlands. In the fall 2017, Bert Joris will be touring with his "Smooth Shake" repertoire.
