RUBICON QUARTET – CROSSCURRENTS
This new quartet unites veteran Belgian free improvisers Patrick De Groote (trumpet) and Cel Overberghe (sax) with label affiliates Martina Verhoeven (piano) and Dirk Serries (acoustic guitar). The result is exceptional, creating almost a new form of improvisation, one that balances between the extravagance of chamber music and post bop of jazz.
WARD/VERHOEVEN/SERRIES/ROBERTS – IMAGINARY JUNCTION
The COVID-19 pandemic pushes improvisers to extend the boundarieq and find solutions to maintain that interaction flowing. Under impulse of Tom Ward, this free impro album was performed/recorded right in the middle of the lockdown in Belgium over the internet : Martina Verhoeven (piano) & Dirk Serries (acoustic guitar) in Belgium vs Cath Roberts (bariton sax, objects) & Tom Ward (flute, clarinet, bass clarinet) in the UK. The result is an esential document on how to remain creative and is just stunning.
