LOUIS ARMSTRONG CELEBRATION

 

Michael Varekamp (trumpet, vocals), Peter Verhas (clarinet, tenorsax), Harry Kanters                (piano), Harry Emmery (bass), Erik Kooger (drums)

 

Trumpet player & singer Michael Varekamp is ten years old when he finds a record in his father's record collection: The Townhall Concert by Louis Armstrong. He plays it and is immediately sold. He can only think 'I want that too!'. What follows is an intensive time of trying, listening, practicing and trying again. Ten years later he travels the world as a jazz trumpet player and a Louis Armstrongconnoisseur. He has been a member of the Dutch Swing College Band for five years, receives the Japanese ‘Kobe Award’ during the Breda Jazz Festival, plays at Jazz at Lincoln Center, is special guest in the band of Kenny Ball and performs in a New Orleans program with Branford Marsalis. When – ten years later - he makes a pilgrimage to the house of Louis in New York City and is allowed to play the trumpets of Louis, he gets inspired again. Together with the famous pianist Harry Kanters he decides to create a band that approaches the music of Louis in a classic way: ‘The Louis Armstrong Celebration Band’. This band plays in the classic ‘All-Star’ line-up of Louis and focuses on the repertoire that Uncle Satchmo played in the 40s and 50s, with sometimes a dodge into the ‘Hot Five’ period.

 

The virtuoso pianist Harry Kanters from Breda is an absolute master in the field of classic jazz, stride and swing. With his extensive repertoire, Harry is a popular pianist with 'All-Star' ensembles and a much sought-after guest soloist with many bands in various styles. Harry played frequently with top soloists such as Leroy Jones, Dan Barrett, Rod Mason, Roy Williams, Warren Vaché and Jason Marsalis. He regularly receives an invitation from international Jazz festivals and has played all over the world, from Hungary to Japan, from America to Australia.

 

Michael and Harry decide to surround themselves with dedicated musicians who have more than earned their spurs in traditional jazz. It is with good reason that the other members of this ‘Tribute Band’ played with the Reunion Jazz Band, Glenn Miller Orchestra, Brussels Jazz Orchestra, Scott Hamilton and Lillian Boutté among others.

 

This unique ‘All Star’ party takes the audience on a journey through time when jazz indeed was a party. The music lives and swings and makes the character of Louis almost tangible.

What a Wonderful World!

& MATHIEU DE WIT DUO

TRIBUTE TO THE SWING ERA

 

Aristide d'Agostino (trumpet), Mathieu De Wit (piano)

 

The swing era , between 1930 and 1950, was the Golden age of jazz music. This period was the foundation of the jazz repertoire for many years after that. Back then the music was mainly ruled by Big Bands with a lot of energy and power. Today at the Music Village we offer you a chance to re-discover this great repertoire in a more intimate setting, a trumpet and a piano. But be aware, the energy might be as powerful as with a big band !

DISNEY MEETS JAZZ

 

Hanne Vansant (vocals), Julien Guilloux (trombone), Julien Delbrouck (Saxophone), Mathieu De Wit (piano), Julien Fraipont (bass), Jonathan Taylor (drums)

 

Over the years, Walt Disney’s movies and their music touched the hearts of entire generations and got engraved in our collective memory. Disney’s music was always greatly influenced by the period of time in which the films were made. Jazz was an inevitable source of inspiration. The movies and their music’s rich history inspired this Belgian jazz sextet to tackle the immortal Disney repertoire. They selected songs from 10 of Disney’s earlier masterpieces made between 1941 and 1989. They jazzed up the repertoire with the utmost respect for the original written music, but gave it their own interpretation nonetheless. Jazz meets Disney or Disney meets Jazz?

FABRICE MUKUNA & LENNART VAN PRAET DUO

AFRO MIXED WITH JAZZ

 

The music of Fabrice Mukuna evokes an almost folkloristic atmosphere that is reminiscent of his home village, its Luba-tongue and the land of Kasaï. With the assistance of pianist Lennart Van Praet, the whole is infused with a more contemporary Western and jazz-like touch.

 

These two musicians like to join their improvising forces and submerge in the music of the moment, making use of different instruments such as piano, guitar, saxophones, drums/percussion… as well as their voices. In addition, Fabrice builds layers of sound with various effect pedals.

 

Through this compelling whole of colourful harmonies and powerful rhythmic cadenses, interaction with the public is also generously nourished and emphasized. A superb voyage ahead!
