Originally from Luxembourg but now based in Brussels, Belgium, this bassplayer who has been a sideman for many years, finally takes the time to present his own compositions in an acoustic jazz quartet setting.

Enriched by his international experience with widely varied styles of music alongside the likes of Randy Brecker, Quentin Dujardin, Steve Houben, Philippe Jaroussky, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Gianluigi Trovesi, Avi Avital, Jacques Pirotton and Didier Lockwood he now makes his mark in a modern, melodic jazz style with nods to blues, baroque and of course the great American songbook and swing.

Enter a world where each note is light, subtle and round. Wrapped in apparent nonchalance, great attention to detail and precision confer a feeling of harmony and calm strength to the whole.
