Scotland meets Belgium

Brussels and Edinburgh join forces around a first collaboration highlighting jazz. A carte blanche is given to two leaders representing each region: the Brussels saxophonist Tom Bourgeois and the Scottish bassist Mark Hendry. They surround themselves with musicians from the thriving European jazz scene. A unique opportunity for these musicians to exchange, weave new links and present their compositions and arrangements,
