The bassist has a real talent for creating modern works that balance expertly between new and old-school forms of expression...deeply melodic forays and from-the-heart blues occupy the same space, unconflicted.
Bird is the Worm

Antwerp bassist, Piet Verbist, has been a central figure in the Belgian jazz scene for decades. With his fifth album on Origin, Verbist turns to the guitar trio format and rekindles his long-time connection with guitarist Hendrik Braeckman, a regular with the Brussels Jazz Orchestra and a fellow force in modern jazz circles. Along with the creative interplay from drummer Lionel Beuvens, the trio unravels an intimate set of originals - along with Charlie Parker's "Cheryl" and Monk's "Pannonica" - building broad atmospheres of color, groove and mood. "Verbist's compositions...give compelling testimony to the ways musical friendships can last a lifetime—and how serendipity, inspiration, and a deep dedication to the music can create a spark when friends' paths do eventually cross." - DOWNBEAT
