Bravo Big Band
B is for Brussels, Belgium and the famous
Bravo BXL jazz club, home and inspiration
for the band.
R is for Recognition and Respect; in just six
years, famous names like Michel Herr, Pierre
Drevet, Johan Plomb, Klas Lindquist and Lode
Mertens have shared the stage with the Bravos.
A is for Agility and Adaptability; with the
rhythmic freedom of a small jazz combo and
the range and colour of the full big band, the
Bravos take on all styles, from vintage swing to
funk, flamenco and French chanson.
V is for Verve and Virtuosity; an infectious
enthusiasm runs through everything they do,
from tight ensemble work and challenging
harmonies to fresh, melodic improvisation.
O is for Orchestra, Opus and Obvious;
illustrating a shared passion for the special
sound of the large jazz ensemble, “Another Story”
is the Bravos’ first album and features their own
compositions. And it’s abundantly clear why these
guys just love to get together and play!
