The Jazz Station will celebrate its 15th anniversary at the end of September. A somewhat special anniversary in view of the current situation, so it was keen to offer an overview, a sketch of what represents the heart of its program. This mini-series of concerts thus evokes the DNA of its scene: organic, curious and open-minded music. Based on the principle that there are as many definitions of jazz as there are jazz(wo)men, these thirty artists chosen from among many others have marked the history of its stage. In their own way, they represent a contemporary vision of jazz, which the Jazz Station supports on a daily basis. Confirmed artists or newcomers to follow closely, crossovers or revisited paths, traveling or intimate souls, these women and men from here or elsewhere embrace in our eyes what the Jazz Station is all about.
Laniakea (Jeroen Van Herzeele & Nicolas Chkifi)
LANIAKEA is Jeroen van Herzeele on tenor, soprano sax, modular synths and Nicolas Chkifi on drums. They drink divine Chinese tea, talk about yoga, kung-fu and they laugh. They walk down, connect, listen and play! Laniakea is a Hawaiien word that means "immense heaven". It is a super cluster of galaxies. This inspires them for their instant compositions.
