Release date 1 April 2013

Genre Jazz 

Highly acclaimed debut album of this Belgian based jazz collective, led by trombone player Dree Peremans. This traditional octet line-up sounds and functions as a mini-bigband, with a lot of self-arranged ensemble work and burning solos. Traditional Hardbop-idiom of the ’50 and ’60 with a modern and youthful twist.

Catalogue Nr SFR-CD004
Release date 1 October 2014

Tutu Puoane adds two horns to her usual Quartet line-up, for a more festive sound. A repertoire of groovy originals and tastefully arranged covers on a crossroad between Jazz, Pop and Soul with some unmistakable South-African flavour.

Title Raincheck
Artist Rebirth::Collective (feat. Jesse van Ruller)

Catalogue Nr SFR-CD005
Release date 20 March 2016

Genre Jazz 

Second album of this acclaimed band, that grew from an octet into a nonet for the occasion by adding an extra trumpet, making it more a small bigband rather than a large small group.  Dutch guitar great Jesse van Ruller is featured as a soloist in a repertoire that entirely consists of tunes by Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington’s notorious partner-in-crime.  Fresh new arrangements, eloquent and elegant playing by van Ruller, a strong band sound and beautiful solo contributions by each of the members make for a very successful celebration of Strayhorn’s music.

Title Narrative
Artist Tim Finoulst Trio

Catalogue Nr SFR-CD006
Release date 14 September 2016  

Genre Jazz

Debut album of this young and very promising guitar trio, led by Tim Finoulst, with Martijn Vanbuel on bass and Daniël Jonkers on drums.  They bring a beautiful repertoire of mainly originals, with a strong emphasis on singable melodies and light grooves.  Introvert at times, and dancing occasionally, the music is full of atmosphere with a beautiful balance between the three instruments.

Title Another Story
Artist Bravo Big Band

Catalogue Nr SFR-CD007
Release date 15 March 2017  

Genre Jazz

First album of this Brussels-based new Jazz Orchestra.  A bunch of young guys playing their behinds off and hyper-motivated to make this project a success…  Great writing and arranging, a solid rhythm section and soloists who can make a difference.  This band is here to stay and has got everything to become a household name in the Big Band world.

Title The Joni Mitchell Project Live
Artist Tutu Puoane

Catalogue Nr SFR-CD008
Release date 01 August 2017  

Genre Jazz

Selection of live-tracks taken from two concerts of Tutu Puoane’s Joni Mitchell Project during its recent 2017 spring tour.  Beautiful renditions of some of Mitchell’s incredible tunes, with an open improvisational approach.  Nice testament to Puoane’s beautiful voice, her charisma on stage and her interaction with the audience.

Title Witchcraft
Artist Rebirth::Collective

Catalogue Nr SFR-CD009
Release date 28 September 2017  

Genre Jazz

Album n°3 of Rebirth::Collective.  After their well-received self-titled debut album and ‘Raincheck’, their tribute to the repertoire of Billy Strayhorn featuring soloist Jesse van Ruller, the band returns to their initial octet line-up, with mainly own compositions and arrangements of leader and trombonist Dree Peremans.  The basic idea remains the same : a fresh and contemporary, but still fully acoustic personal take on hard bop, with well-arranged swinging versions of standards and originals, and a lot of space for solo work from all seats in the band.
