I am the Artist in Residence for the Brussels Jazz Festival 2022 ! 

I will present 3 new projects, created for the occasion. 
3 very different musical atmospheres, which reveal my different musical loves: for acoustic jazz, for electronic instruments and the research of sound, and for baroque music... 

16/01 : Triptyque : Jean-Paul Estiévenart - Marcel Ponseele & Il Gardellino feat Anthony Romaniuk

"Two so different worlds, baroque and jazz, meet where the distinction between them disappears. By touching the hearts of the listeners, we understand that Music is a Universal Language that transcends everything."

Marcel Ponseele

19/01 : Deus Ex Machina 

In ancient Greek theatre, 'Deus ex machina' referred to a mechanical device that caused a god to descend on stage in spectacular fashion. 

Jean-Paul Estiévenart, trumpet
Jozef Dumoulin, Fender Rhodes
Bert Cools, guitar
Bo Van der Werf, saxophone
Antoine Pierre, drums


21/01 : International quintet

Mixing two generations of artists and two continents will provoke a rich encounter, a true exchange. This will give the new repertoire a particular, contrasting and interesting color... 

Jean-Paul Estiévenart, trumpet

Chris Potter, saxophone
Bram De Looze, piano
Clemens van der Feen, double bass
