N∆BOU (Winner Public Prize XL Jazz 2018)#jazz #fusion


Nabou Claerhout: trombone, Roeland Celis: electric guitar, Trui Amerlinck: double bass, Mathias Vercammen: drums

N∆BOU is a musical project founded by Nabou Claerhout in 2016. The music of the band and the unique sound of the trombone are very different from what we hear nowadays. Besides the jazzy sound of J.J. Johnson, the fresh and funky power of Fred Welsey and the fusion play of Robin Eubanks, today, the audience doesn’t get to hear much other facets of the instrument. Especially on a European level, the window is open for a new generation of musicians.

Thanks to their refreshing trombone sound, innovative effects and original approach of compositions, the young, promising quartet is part of this current movement. Nabou Claerhout (trombone), Trui Amerlinck (double bass), Roeland Celis (guitar) and Mathias Vercammen (drums) want to introduce the extensive possibilities of the trombone instrument to their spectators and show its worth.
