Joachim Caffonnette Trio and Sextet
February’s “Thrill” Festival in Edinburgh shone a light on the brilliant jazz coming out of the Brussels Jazz scene right now. Pianist, Caffonnette is one of the leaders of a new wave of Belgian musicians steeped in tradition, with prodigious technique and a wish to combine sophistication with direct emotional power. He’s a food writer and novelist too! Tonight he’ll present his beautiful Trio and then an all star Belgian/Scottish Sextet presented with co-leader Michael Butcher (tenor saxophone).
