Moses Boyd "Exodus"
Binker Golding (ts) Moses Boyd (dms) + tbc...
This must-have London nu-jazz drummer has more than one wand in his bag. Winner of the Mobo Award 2015 and 2017 and the Gilles Peterson Worldwilde Award in 2016, Moses Boyd is surprisingly mature and masterful. A tireless sideman, he has collaborated with artists such as Lonnie Liston Smith, Four Tet, Zara McFarlane, Binker Golding (the duo Binker & Moses) as well as with the saxophonist not to be missed this May 19 at Reflektor, Nubya Garcia.
A big fan of Tony Allen, he likes to mix genres and cultures. With Exodus, he is undertaking an ambitious project here as a leader that opens up new horizons of rhythmic freedom.
The Bad Plus
Reid Anderson (cb) Orrin Evans (pn) Dave King (dms)
Yes We Can! We are very happy to welcome for the first time at the Mithra Jazz in Liège, one of the most emblematic trios of the current jazz scene. Since its creation almost 15 years ago, The Bad Plus has challenged the boundaries that connect musical genres. This Minneapolis trio may seem like a group of heretics at first glance with their covers of pop songs (Nirvana, Bowie,...), but they should not be trusted, their writing is as important as improvisation and their knowledge of the history of jazz without feint. The aesthetic quadrants will be on the stage of the Reflektor for a memorable performance, a promise!
