WELCOME

The ECLECTIC COLLECTIVE led by Yves Vermeire, wants to introduce modern jazz to the large public. ECLECTIV is the perfect cocktail of accessible modern jazz, with a taste for innovating sounds, funky grooves and lots of energetic interaction.

 

 

This project was born in Ghent, Belgium, and consists of a unique collaboration between a dynamic rhythm section and 3 powerful horns. Expect a high level of innovation and challenging music!
