Nate Wooley (trumpet) – C. Spencer Yeh (violin, vocals) – Samara Lubelski (violin, guitar, bass) – Chris Corsano (drums) – Ryan Sawyer (drums) – Teun Verbruggen (drums) – Bram De Looze (keyboards) – Julien Desprez (guitar) – Hendrik Lazure (keyboards)
“There are few initiatives that focus on avant-garde or experimental art and music”, says Teun Verbruggen. With Werkplaats Walter in Anderlecht, the Belgian jazz drummer wants to change this and “create a place where like-minded souls meet and work together, while also being a pillar in the neighbourhood”. The result is not only to be seen (and heard) in Brussels, but also this summer at the Gent Jazz Festival. On the day that John Zorn takes over the main stage with his infamous Bagatelles, Werkplaats Walter will take over the Garden Stage with four different formations.
Headliner will be the song cycle 7 Storey Mountain of American trumpeter Nate Wooley – a good friend of John Zorn by the way. Wooley wrote the music without any specific genre in mind, and for the festival he will be travelling to Belgium a week in advance to rehearse it with a very special one-off band at Werkplaats Walter. Improvisation is, of course, mandatory.
