Uit het juryverslag

Enkele commentaren op basis waarvan de jury tot een unaniem besluit kwam…

Latitude
These are very young musicians | their compositions are very nice | It’s obvious that they’ve very well-rehearsed | songs with different dynamics | accents are together: music is fun! | the rhythm section was very good (a perfect choice) | the experience and level of all players | great comping | extras for interaction | they listen to each other (the way the solo in the first song was taken over from sax to guitar…) | they have an understanding of different styles (2 nd bossa-fork feel) | communication = plus | they enjoy playing | fun | the band leader did his best to talk to the audience (can still improve, but he surely wants to do it)

Matthias Van den Brande Trio
Nice melodies | all parameters are present (sound, timing, dynamics, melodic/harmonic balance) | they play in many different colors, even some surprises and not monotonous | interaction = plus | the technique of all players is great | even with a substitute bass player they stand out | announcements = plus | we heard diverse sounds | of course, it is easier to be more free with 3 | the structures are well prepared (from intro to coda) | music with a concept and in line with their own liner notes
