  • an energized mix of jazz, soul, rock & funk
  • a set of eight joyous originals
With an energized mix of jazz, soul, rock & funk, Belgian bassist Piet Verbist's Zygomatik takes the classic, mostly acoustic jazz quartet instrumentation to new places on the band's second recording. The trio of Verbist, drummer Herman Pardon, and Bram Weijters on Fender Rhodes, is joined by two saxophonists - Jeroen Van Herzeele on tenor & soprano, and Vinicent Brijs on baritone - as they slip and slide through a set of eight joyous originals. A staple on the European jazz circuit for many years, Verbist's deep sense of groove, time, and harmonic interest have made him a favorite of touring international artists and the many Belgian groups he's toured the world with over the last 20 years.
