FAY CLAASSEN/IVAN PADUART GROUP
In collaboration with VPRO Radio
Fay Claassen-vocals, Ivan Paduart-piano, Bert Joris-trumpet, fluegelhorn, Toon Roos-saxophones, Philippe Aerts-bass, Mimi Verderame-drums
Fay Claasen's graceful approach, perfect timing and capability to improvise like a horn, have made her a cherished vocalist. In this group she works together with Belgian pianist/composer Ivan Paduart who developed his own style out of the inevitable influences of Bill Evans and Herbie Hancock that he expressed in his work with Toots Thielemans, Philip Catherine and Charlie Mariano.
