In 2009, he began jazz piano with Marc Mangen and in 2011, vibraphone with Guy Cabay. The Arthur Possing Quartet was formed in 2013. The members of the group met in school (music section) and soon started to play together regularly. They now are all students of the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and the Conservatoire de la Ville de Luxembourg. Their repertoire consists of own compositions, as well as tunes of jazzmen they really appreciate. The quartet plays modern jazz, with influences from all different kinds of genres, without forgetting the tradition.

Jeff Herr Corporation ft. Adam Rogers - CD release « Manifesto » || Saturday 15, June 2019 - 18:00

Jeff Herr - drums, compositions / Adam Rogers (USA) - guitar / Maxime Bender - saxophone / Laurent Payfert - double bass

Jeff Herr’s new Corporation surprises with a new setting and dexterity, presenting itself now a s a linear trio, without the need for a harmonical instrument. Maxime Bender on Saxophone and Laurent Payfert on Bass complete this new highly skilled and energetic trio which relies on compositional abilities from each of the 3 members. Well arranged and structured songs as well as wild and free improvisations cover the band’s large repertoire, filled with some surprising cover songs from well known Pop artists such as David Bowie or Jimi Hendrix. The strength and tightness of the band emerge from a strong rhythmical impact and emphasize the origins of music : the groove.
The highly acclaimed album « Layer Cake » (distributed and licensed by IGLOO Records/Editions SOWAREX) has been released on the 30 november 2014 @ Centre Culturel de Rencontre Abbaye de Neumünster and is being distributed all over Europe as well as in Japan.
Entitled “Manifesto”, the new album of the Luxembourgisch contemporary jazz trio consists of 7 original songs and a surprising cover version of Randy Newman’s ‘Same girl’. It ensures the continuity of the previous album “Layer Cake”, of the oscillation between structured compositions and free improvisations as well as of the contrast between the acoustic sound and the contemporary interpretation.
This time, however, the trio is joined on several songs by the american guitarist Adam Rogers, known for his work in the modern jazz idiom and his numerous collaborations with musicians such as Norah Jones, Ravi Coltrane or Marcus Miller. His guitar play, rooted in the acoustic jazz music and influenced by Pat Martino, George Benson and Wes Montgomery, provides the Jeff Herr Corporation with a unique aspect and a new, intriguing sound.
