Please check this video as I explain (Dutch) my approach to my different projects, including excerpts of music, that I had the pleasure to present on Gent Jazz Festival 2016 !!
As interesting as tenor saxophonist Steven Delannoye’s recent quartet album was (Here Comes Tomorrow – W.E.R.F 2014), it didn’t prepare us for the sublimity of this two-man encounter. Duets live have it all: brilliant and spirited individual playing, exceptional rapport, a terrific mix of songs, a luminous awareness of jazz in all its varied forms and opening windows to 20th century classical music. What makes Steven and Nicola so compatible, even though they are still at the beginning of their careers, is the ease with which they each straddle and move back and forth across the line between modern and pre-modern.
