When: 8-9-2017

Where: Jazzzolder


Het 2de concert van Jazzathome gaat door in de jazzzolder en laat het publiek kennis maken met de winnaars van de 4de JazzContest in 2016.

VORTEX is a Belgian/French jazz band formed in 2015. In 2016 they won the two prizes of Jazz Contest Mechelen: Best Band and Best Soloist (Alan).
All writing for the band, their compositions give them a lot of space to communicate in a direct and vivid manner.
It all begun on a rather pleasant summer's afternoon, back in 2015, as a cosy jam session in the living room of the pianist, something jazz musicians regularly do. From in the beginning everyone felt it: this combination works and we had to do something with it. Hence the birth of VORTEX.
The peculiar but equally interesting fact is that the members all come from a completely different background, yet they all have their ears wide open to learn new things everyday.
