About Gratitude Trio

Gratitude Trio - Jeroen Van Herzeele (sax, EWI, effects), Louis Favre (drums and vocals) and Alfred Vilayleck (electric bass) - a Belgian/French band based in Brussels known for their strength and sensitivity that opens people's hearts.
The music of this power trio is tinged with spacy sounds, african rhythms, sexy grooves, endless trances, sensitive ballads, crazy free jazz and a large dose of unpredictable.
Gratitude exists since May 2010 and has performed in prestigious venues such as Jazz Middelheim, La Fête de la Musique in  Liege, Brussels Jazz Marathon, Jazz Station, Pelzer Jazz Club, Zottegem Jazz Festival, Porgy and Bess in Vienna, Belgian embassies in Amman and Berlin, Ham Sessions in Ghent, Het STUK, Jazz In het Park Festival, AJMI in Avignon, the Jazzèbre Festival in Perpignan ...

Their two first albums "Gratitude" and "Alive" released in 2012 and 2015 under the label El Negocito Records have been very well received by the critics (Le Soir, De Standaard ...) and the enthusiastic audience.

The 3rd album Gratitude III will be released in April 2018. New sound, new approach. It's going to move you !
Indeed, the voice and EWI will enrich the sound palette while the musicians have developed a new way to create together.

Jacques Prouvost speaks about Gratitude with these words: "Welcome to the powerful energy of Gratitude Trio. They start where Coltrane left off - passion, mastery, adrenaline and feelings, inspired improvisations, perfect listening and strong dialogue - a must. "

"Music with an authentic strength"
Karel Van Keymeulen (De Standaard)
"A saxophonist with huge potential , capable of lyrical melodies and libertarian outbursts with a truly personal sound"
Claude Loxhay (jazzhalo.be)
"the majestic Favre' cymbal sound ( ...) a shadowy mystery with a fragile, almost pastoral serenity(...) warm-blooded , complex interplay, sly grooves and passionate and ( still ) underrated play of Van Herzeele"
