"The Magnificent Seven" of the Belgian jazz scene led by the guitar hero Guillaume Vierset come back with their second album. Around strong and well-built melodies, the LG Jazz Collective delivers a more complex and mature album, thanks to the presence of two new recruits. With several awards to their name and a widely-acclaimed first album, LG Jazz collective presents their new release, "Strange Deal" Once again, guitarist Guillaume Vierset is behind all the compositions and arrangements. He is accompanied by trumpetist Jean-Paul Estievenart, tenor sax player Steven Delannoye, double-bass player Felix Zurstrassen and drummer Antoine Pierre. Alex Koo now replaces Ignor Gehenot on piano and Rob Banken is the septet's new alto sax player. Strange Deal does not orbit around the guitar alone. On the contrary, Guillaume pulls all he can from the characteristics and variables of his musician partners to produce a strong and dynamic group sound. The link with the jazz tradition is still there, as is the project's acoustic feel. This is because the LG Jazz Collective does not need electronic subterfuges. The dynamics are mostly based on strong, well-constructed melodies. The group is organic and builds it's music according to it's own rules, to which each adds their own touch.
