He began his music studies at the Conservatory in Liège where he met, among others, drummer Michel Debrulle, who would become a loyal musical companion to this day. Together with him and saxophonist Fabrizio Cassol (Aka Moon) he set up the Trio Bravo band in the mid-1980s. Fabrizio subsequently went his own way and was replaced by French clarinettist/saxophonist Laurent Dehors. The name was changed to Trio Grande in 1993. To this day the trio is still one of the most exciting bands in our country.
Their latest CD 'Hold the line' which they recorded on our label with British pianist Matthew Bourne in 2011 bears witness to this. Due to his huge range of musical tastes he also got to grips with the most varying styles over the years, which is also expressed in the various types of projects he can be found in. From the intimate chamber music jazz of the trio Florizoone/Massot/Horbaczweski to the African jazz of MixTuur to the slightly eccentric big band music of the Rêve d'Eléphant Orchestra.
He is also a much loved musician abroad and has been included in projects of, among others, Louis Sclavis, Evan Parker, Han Bennink, Rabih-Abou Khalil, Kenny Wheeler and Christophe Monniot.
