MANUEL HERMIA TRIO - Jazz Live Act in Brussels

MANUEL HERMIA TRIO Short Info

Manuel Hermia and his trio takes us into a world of jazz rooted in tradition and also open to all influences, music both modern and risk-loving, but still approachable. It presents some compositions based on his principle of "Rajazz”, with a harmonic research and a mixture of colours that gives it a unique character, some other compositions border on jazz, with a range of emotions from the sweetest and deepest ones to the craziest and most infuriated ones.
Manuel Hermia, together with Manolo Cabras on double bass and Joao Lobo on drums, shares with us his appetite for the present moment with a modern trio that strives to honour this libertarian music called jazz.

With the CD « Long Tales et Short Stories » in 2010, the trio received the Octave for best jazz project in 2011 in Belgium. Then they went all over clubs and festivals in Belgium, but also in France, Portugal, Greece, Vietnam and ended with a tour in China in December 2012.

The new album « Austerity… And what about rage ? » will be released at the beginning of 2015. The music will evoke the crisis in Europe, and tries to bring back to free jazz its libertarian voice and its original cry replacing it here and now, not in a historical context anymore – the United States of America in the ‘60s and ‘70s – but in contemporary Europe, and generally in today’s world.
