We want to congratulate Robin Verheyen with winning a Klara award for best Jazz cd of the year! The artistic multi talented saxophonist and composer Robin Verheyen did quite some interesting things last year. He released an album: 'A Look Beyond' on Challenge Records which he recorded in 2014 with Russ Johnsen, trumpet, Drew Gress, bass and Jeff Davis, percussion. Robin Verheyen was inspired by his stay in Senegal (Cap-Vert Dakar) and by the studying the work of the French composer Olivier Messiaen. The cd brings a mix betweeen Messiaens composers style, traditional West-African music and the new sound of the NYC jazz and improv scene. The compositions are well thought through and pure, with a lot of attention for the color changes in de sounds but still powerfull!
