LARA ROSSEEL QUINTET

DE GROTE VROUW
  • Lara Rosseel Band

About This Project

She graduated from the Lemmens Institute, was a former apprentice of Ander Jormin and Bobo Stenson, and played with established acts such as Chris Joris Band, Pierre Van Dormael Quartet, Barnill Brothers and  Zap Mama. It’s fair to say that Belgian double bassist Lara Rosseel has come a long way; easily to be considered one of the hardest working women in the Belgian jazz scene. After releasing a critically acclaimed debut album, De Grote Vrouw (2020), it’s now time to continue her personal quest. A journey that bursts with dancing melodies and surprising rhythms, her music is best described as ethnic acoustic jazz, flirting in a zone where cinematic jazz meets African traditional roots.

For the forthcoming record, Lara has been surrounded by a brand new band, consisting of Sam Vloemans, Sep Francois, Vitja Pauwels and Angelo Moustapha. In her own words, the perfect partners in crime to create a fresh repertory, a unique universe where both security and fantasy are central. Expect an album that shifts from rich arrangements to more intimate pieces, full band compositions interspersed with small auditive paintings. Musical and creative freedom with groove and ingenious interplay as the only precedents.

The new album is expected for spring 2022. Be prepared for some lyrical beauty.

Lara Rosseel, the poet on the double bass and a gifted composer; the silent soul with respect and love for the music, which she wants to discover and which, as far as she is concerned, goes in many directions and carries several faces.” – Chris Joris
