'Fascinating Rhythm', 'Lady Be Good' and 'But Not For Me':
I arranged these 3 Gerswin songs  for The Royal Band of the Belgian Navy with the fantastic soloist Tutu Puoane.
The concert will be in Brugge at the 'stadsschouwburg' on november 9.

 

Last summer we had a great time in Studio IJsseldijk.
I met Sharbel Hanna last spring and we talked about how to arrange new Aramees songs.
The result of our collaboration: Sharbel Hanna and yours truly:

 

September 2017

It was a busy summer. After some time at home, it was time to arrange again.
My brother Louis and I had a great time with good musicians in the studio.
Sharbel Hanna wrote a beautiful melody that I arranged for the band.
It will be a beautiful production.

Take a look on Facebook for a MINI DOCU about this project.
