You probably know Bert Dockx from bands like Dans Dans and Flying Horseman. Or as a solo artist. His previous album Transit (filled with gorgeous covers of Bruce Springsteen and Fleetwood Mac) received four stars in the Belgian magazine Humo, who also named Dockx ‘Bard of the Night’. Which is a good thing, because with his relatively new jazz band OTTLA, the guitarist will close the Garden Stage at midnight. What to expect? Several compositions by masters like Thelonious Monk and Herbie Nichols, to whom Dockx owes his love for jazz, but also a lot of his own work and lots of improvisation. Honestly: this is a gig to look forward to!
