A taste of jazz

Leuven Jazz gives you a taste of many different kinds of jazz. And at some concerts you may even taste a tad more: a delicious soup at the lunch concerts, a tasteful pre-dinner drink in the eve or go 'all the way' at the SUnday jazz brunch.

  • Kind of blue (Tue 19.03): Students of LUCA Jazz, led by Dré Pallemaerts, draw inspiration from Miles Davis' masterpiece 'Kind of Blue'.
  • KAMEEL (Wen 20.03): Instrumental trio that combines jazz, rock and experiment. Think Marc Ribot or Arto Lindsay.
  • Under the surface (Thu 21.03): Dutch trio with rising star and vocalist Sanne Rambags, a mixture of improvisation and poetry.
  • Keith Jarrett (Thu 21.03): Young jazz talents pay tribute to American pianist Keith Jarrett!

Just like every Sunday evening the STUK Café changes into a cosy jazz club. On Sun 17.03 guitarist Albert Vila presents you his new trio and new record. Sun 24.03 IH8 Camera ‘SUPER 9’ pays honor to the guitar: at least nine musicians (Rudy Trouvé, Daan Stuyven, Stef Kamil Carlens, Bjorn Eriksson … ) will display musical fireworks!
