The Jazz Station will celebrate its 15th anniversary at the end of September. A somewhat special anniversary in view of the current situation, so it was keen to offer an overview, a sketch of what represents the heart of its program. This mini-series of concerts thus evokes the DNA of its scene: organic, curious and open-minded music. Based on the principle that there are as many definitions of jazz as there are jazz(wo)men, these thirty artists chosen from among many others have marked the history of its stage. In their own way, they represent a contemporary vision of jazz, which the Jazz Station supports on a daily basis. Confirmed artists or newcomers to follow closely, crossovers or revisited paths, traveling or intimate souls, these women and men from here or elsewhere embrace in our eyes what the Jazz Station is all about.
Flying Nimbus (Lynn Cassiers & Manolo Cabras)
Belgian singer Lynn Cassiers (Tape Cuts Tape, Lilly Joel) and Italian bass player Manolo Cabras (Erik Vermeulen Trio, Manu Hermia Freetet) have been playing together for almost 20 years. Being long time allies, they have collaborated in different projects together of which each had its own peculiar space on the axis between jazz and electro-acoustic improvised music. Flying Nimbus is the most
intimate version of this partnership, inhibiting space with electronic textures and songs of both Cabras and Cassiers. Throughout their repertoire one can always hear a far echo of jazz. A curious combination of elements, treated freely and crafty into Flying Nimbus peculiar universe.
