Lara Rosseel Quintet

At the beginning of 2020, Lara Rosseel was the surprise of the Belgian jazz scene. With an album that she released self-managed (De Grote Vrouw), she suddenly conquered room after room. But not surprising really: that band provided a lush colour and Rosseel’s Rosseel’s compositions, which are regularly imbued with exotic are regularly permeated with exotic influences, Rosseel’s compositions balance on an enviable enviable border between mystery and recognisability. Music that did not need of boastful gymnastics, but a loudly beating heart tailored to the heart tailored to the needs of a broad audience. Now Rosseel continues her conquest with a young quintet and a new repertoire. quintet and a new repertoire in which she gives all her trump cards a new twist. with which she can give all these assets a new twist.

She takes care of the foundation of the compositions, with the organic soul that is soul that is so typical of her. Trumpet player Sam Vloemans (Cargo Mas, Bram Weijters’ Crazy Men) is just as at home in jazz that beckons to exotic in jazz that beckons to exotic places. Guitarist Vitja Pauwels (Bombataz, Warm Bath, Naima Joris) is one of the striking young of the striking young voices of the moment, a guitarist of wondrous textures, while Sep François (The Colorist Orchestra), who once toured with Ifa Y Xango
