Motives for jazz Showcase festival!

25 jaar Motives for Jazz moet gevierd worden. Daarom presenteren we op zondag 3 april ‘22 een showcase festival met 7 acts die meer dan de moeite waard zijn om door te breken.

In september 1997 ging het Limburgse overlegplatform jazz van start. Het netwerk telde toen 10 partners: PCM Casino Beringen, de cultuurcentra van Bilzen, Heusden-Zolder, Maasmechelen & Peer, Kunstencentrum België [Hasselt], Muziekodroom [Hasselt],
 de jazzclubs The Mood [Hasselt] en Maazz/Sjruur Live [Maaseik]. Niet veel later sloten ook de cultuurcentra van Genk, Hasselt, Neerpelt en Sint Truiden aan en werd het netwerk omgedoopt tot Motives for Jazz. Nu, 25 jaren later, is vzw Motives for Jazz een autonome organisatie geworden die jazz in al haar variëteiten promoot en producties ontwikkelt in de regio Belgisch en Nederlands Limburg. Vertrekpunt zijn de talrijke Limburgse jazztalenten die in diverse [inter]nationale projecten actief zijn.

De locatie is het prachtig industrieel kader van MUZE & ZLDR Luchtfabriek in Heusden-Zolder. Er zullen maximum 200 tickets beschikbaar zijn.

Trio In Bocca Al Lupo review

Happy to share this concert review from DEDICATO

Triology New Album


In August of this year, American composer and alto saxophonist Charlie Parker would have celebrated his 100th birthday. Although 'Bird' only turned 34, his music has never been more alive. Together with a.o. Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk, Parker is considered one of the founding fathers of bebop: after him, jazz would never be the same. His brilliant virtuosity and harmonic complexity sparks the imagination of many jazz musicians. His centennial marks the ideal opportunity to work with his music and that's something Carlo Nardozza (trumpet), Christophe Devisscher (bass) and Tim Finoulst (guitar) from the brand new trio Triology, firmly agree on. “With Par Cœur, we pay tribute to Parker. An interpretation of his virtuoso was an interesting first challenge for us, which we – as a trio – enthusiastically took on”, explains Nardozza.

Triology was born out of Duology, a duo consisting of Nardozza and Devisscher. When they played together at Nardozza's musical home project Casa Nardo, they immediately decided to form a trio. Triology was born, as well as the idea to record an album with songs by Parker. 'Relaxin at Camarillo' and Anthropology' are approached by the trio with the pure emotion that also determines the orginal music. Besides compositions by Parker himself, Par Cœur equally includes jazz essentials of which Bird recorded his own version, like 'Cherokee' (Ray Noble) and 'Just Friends' (John Klenner). With Par Cœur Nardozza, Devisscher and Finoulst deliver a soulful, lively homage to the jazz titan. Or how Parker keeps inspiring.

For the album cover, the trio worked together with Luc Vanden Bosch, a drummer who's found the love for drawing in recent years. The work of Vanden Bosch – inspired by Parker's music – will be exhibited during the concerts of Triology.
