new album: THE BIG EASY REVISITED

available on dewerfrecords & iTunes

cover Gumbo album

Yves Peeters Gumbo takes you on an imaginary trip to the pre- and post-Katrina New Orleans. The music is a melting pot of influences and styles from ‘The Big Easy’: powerful gospel and soul vocals, mixed with second-line grooves, bluesy piano licks, funky horn riffs and haunting voodoo rhythms, with a lot of room on top for improvisation. The Big Easy Revisited is a personal and contemporary interpretation of the inexhaustibly musical heritage from New Orleans.

Francois Vaiana – vocals
Bruce James (USA) – piano & vocals
Nicolas Kummert – tenor sax
Dree Peremans – trombone
Axel Gilain (live) / Nicolas Thys (album) – bass
Yves Peeters – drums
