The Jelle Van Giel group, based in Belgium, is a ‘searching-for a-new-direction’ in jazz, crossing over from jazz into rock and classical music to deep African rhythms. It was founded in 2011 by Jelle who was searching for talented, exciting and driven musicians for his newest project. He wrote big and tight arrangements that take the listener on a musical adventure, still with a lot of space for every musician to express themselves and bring a story within a story, keeping it new and fresh all the time. The music is lyrical with a lot of underlying rhythmical power and cross-rhythms and has very interesting different kinds of instrumentation. The members of this septet, the future of the Belgium/European jazz scene, came together after a long time of playing in separate bands and formations in the Belgium/European jazz scene. They all blend perfectly together in this new band creating exciting music that everybody can listen to!
