Why a Belgian Jazz festival?
The characteristics of Belgian Jazz are : its creative richness, its diversity and its intergenerational and stylistic openness.
By Belgian Jazz, we mean, any band leader who has his residence in Belgium and who dedicates his artistic practice to this universal music, where the only rule, regardless of the rhythm, the instrumentation, etc., is to leave room for interaction through improvisation.
At a time when there have never been so many Jazz musicians and Jazz band in our country, it is quite paradoxical to notice that there are fewer and fewer Jazz musicians and musicians living in Belgium on the stages of so-called « Jazz » festivals » in our country.
We solved this paradox creating the first edition of the Belgian Jazz Festival!
