New release! Elko Blijweert & Frans Van Isacker present their new album at Het Bos in Antwerp, 2nd May 2015

Up until the year 2010 guitar hero Elko Blijweert and saxophone virtuoso Frans Van Isacker brought jazz music to the rocking masses as key members of Franco Saint De Bakker. Now they have joined forces again to bring us “Atlajala Land”, a voyage through time and space that takes the listener from avant-garde free jazz over melancholic melodies to the sensual sounds of a late-night make-out session in an abandoned castle. This release (vinyl and cd) is brought to you by Heaven Hotel in collaboration with Teun Verbruggen’s RAT records and will presented on 2nd May at Het Bos in Antwerp…
