Archie Shepp / Jan Kricke

Archie Shepp Quartet

Opening concert

Who better than Archie Shepp and his quartet to launch the Brussels Jazz Festival. In 2017 this legendary musician celebrated his 80th birthday and we are delighted to welcome to Flagey one of the founders of the 'free jazz' movement. We look forward to hearing how he magics his unparalleled improvisations and incredible colour palette out of his saxophone.

Shabaka Hutchings, the new "king of jazz", draws inspiration from his five favorite albums by Shepp to offer us his musical portrait.
