The band 1000 has gone through many musical developments since it was founded in 2004 by Jan Klare, Bart Maris, Wilbert de Joode and Michael Vatcher. It actually started playing compositions mainly from the classical world by composers like Wagner Bach or Monteverdi, combined with some originals by Klare. Although composition was always a crucial element in their music, the way these four players improvised together was the prominent impressive side of the quartet. ("consistently interesting quartet that keeps evolving and getting better with each release." Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery). Through the years 1000 developed a very intuitive, almost telepathic musical language with an enormous instinct for form and structure. When drummer Vatcher left to New York City in 2017 the band was shaken. An invitation to the Moers festival 2018 and demand of some bookers pushed 1000 back into action ending up as a six piece band including Elisabeth Coudoux on cello and Steve Swellon trombone.

A Belgian based jazz trio. "An unusual line-up" you might think, or "no bass player, isn't that a handicap?" Not so with Backback. Through years of rehearsing, gigging, and recording the trio has forged their own impressive sound and they also seem to have a magic formula that keeps their music fresh, ingenious, yet accessible. Filip Wauters' original compositions are moulded around and bounce off and the band's individual playing styles and explore a whole range of musical styles and influences: jazz, rock, free jazz, funk, the result is uniquely Backback, an established name in the Belgian jazz scene.
