June

As the end of our season slowly looms on the horizon, it’s time to take stock. After the past two years, we can only rejoice in a return to a slightly more “normal” cultural life. A cultural life where we are allowed to welcome you in the natural conviviality that emerges from our club, without restriction, without distancing and without a mask. What a joy also to be able to once again introduce you to some of the big names in international jazz (over the past few months, let us note in a non-exhaustive way Petros Klampanis, Ralph Alessi, Peter Bernstein, Bill Stewart, Larry Goldings, Or Bareket, Grégoire Maret, Andy Emler, Kenny Werner, Justin Faulkner, …) !

For this month of June and before closing our doors for two long months, we are resuming our habits by hosting the end-of-year exams for students from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, but also those from the Brussels Academies. It was essential for us to once again allow the jazz of tomorrow to develop in the best possible conditions. For jazz to continue to thrive, it is vital to stimulate it, and to facilitate its access and learning ! In the same vein, the young and talented saxophonist Yonatan Hes will come to present his promising first opus "Fly".

The day before, we will welcome the trio of Gábor Ladányi, guitarist of Hungarian origin whom you may have already seen in the Ensemble of Roby Lakatos. The following week, place for the duo composed of Bert Joris and Dado Moroni ! French pianist Jean-Marie Machado will also join us with his "Majakka" project, accompanied by Jean-Charles Richard, Vincent Segal and Keyvan Chemirani. Bruno Grollet’s concert, "Haunted Polliwog", initially scheduled for March, will finally be postponed to June 23. The next day, Toni Mora will present his brand new album as a quintet. And finally, the quartet of Amaury Faye and Julian Lee will end this last month of programming in style !

Before leaving you, we cannot resist slightly lifting the veil on the headliners that will dazzle our fall. Without telling you too much, know that we will welcome a plethora of renowned artists, to make Brussels vibrate and find the atmosphere of a real jazz club ! We won’t tell you more, for the complete fall program, you will have to be patient and wait for the start of the school year ! Until then, all that remains is for us to wish you a fabulous summer, whether it be placed under the sign of travel or reunions with loved ones !
