Since 2006, the Jazz Station Big Band is resident of the Jazz Station. Having become a real actor on the Belgian scene, the band has developed a real unique sound. The JSBB is composed of 13 outstanding soloists, among whom are its own arrangers. As part of this festival, they will brilliantly revisit the repertoire of the great Charles Mingus.

"The Jazz Station Big Band is without any doubt one of the most promising big bands in Europe. The writing is ingenious and ambitious and the arrangements are deep and sensible. Their clever use of odd measures, metric changes and free improvisation keep the listener awake, but a great lyricism, simplicity and beauty are also in their work. There is no doubt a high quality album of an orchestra with unlimited potential" Antonio Sanchez (Pat Metheny drummer Group, and composer of the film soundtrack Birdman, Oscar for best film (2015) and César for best foreign film).
