Album Remarks & Appraisals:
On their Jazz Village début, David Linx and the Brussels Jazz Orchestra lovingly reinterpret the music of the great Jacques Brel. The creator of a universal and timeless body of songs, Brel was able to delve into the very depths of the human soul. This magnificent tribute features several of Brel's songs. Hear them swing and groove once again in the hands of one of best jazz big bands on the planet.
