This project brings out Maxime Moyaerts's two big sources of inspiration: Jazz greatest artists and Comic strips.
You would not immediately think of combining these two American arts, yet they have so much in common...
Not only do they share infinite interpretation and creation perspectives but also constant evolution over time.
Both of these universes inspired the personal compositions presented in this project.
In some of the compositions, you may recognize the universes of Batman and Superman. In others, you will spot Oscar Peterson’s swing, Barry Harris’s lyricism or Cedar Walton’s sophistication.
“Heroes” is the birth of a very personal project shared with two other wonderful musicians, Alex Gilson and Armando Luongo, that will be recorded very soon.
Maxime Moyaerts: piano
Alex Gilson: double bass
Armando Luongo: drums
"BAM! Trio" is first of all a sound. The sound of the fantastic association of the organ, the guitar and the drums. It is also a tribute to the lushness of jazz. The three musicians have an infinite respect for the beauty of this music.
