YVES PEETERS GUMBO – The Big Easy Revisited

For this new project, the musicians make an imaginary trip to the pre- and post-Katrina New Orleans. The music they compose, arrange and play is a melting pot of influences and styles from The Big Easy: powerful gospel and soul vocals, mixed with second-line grooves, bluesy piano licks, funky horn riffs and haunting voodoo rhythms, with a lot of room on top for improvisation. The Big Easy Revisited is a personal and contemporary interpretation of the inexhaustibly rich musical heritage from New Orleans.

Yves Peeters Group is brought together March 2007 by drummer Yves Peeters. After a series of concerts in jazz clubs and festivals at home and abroad, including Jazz in ‘t Park (Ghent, Belgium) and Bamako Jazz Festival (Mali), the band tours with Jazzlab Series in 2010. Their debut album ‘Sound Tracks’ is released the same year on the W.E.R.F. label and is enthusiastically received by press and public.

In 2012, the band starts working together with visual artist Joop Pareyn on the creation of Hallucinations, an audiovisual performance they start touring with in spring 2013. The music Yves Peeters Group composes for this project leads to the recording of their second album ‘All you see’, which is released March 2013 on cd and vinyl.

The repertoire of Yves Peeters Group consists of original compositions by all band members and is characterized by a colorful mix of influences such as americana, rock and African music, with jazz as its basic ingredient.
