Today he is presenting his debut as the leader of his own trio, which was completed for the occasion by international star Perico Sambeat. This Spanish saxophonist developed into an absolute celebrity in his own country since the 1980s. You could see him at work with big names such as Brad Mehldau, Maria Schneider, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Pat Metheny and Kenny Wheeler.
The clever dialogues between the two brass players are supported by a solid rhythm section consisting of bassist Sam Gerstmans and drummer Antoine Pierre. Both are among the trendsetters of the contemporary Walloon jazz scene. High time to greet them with open arms in Flanders.
The repertoire of this foursome consists of own compositions written by Jean-Paul Estiévenart and a modern adaptation of Lazy Bird by John Coltrane. This results in fierce contemporary jazz with deep roots in tradition.
