Zwornturf (BE)

3 Titans in Belgian jazz

Zwornturf is a powerhouse trio comprised of three of Belgium’s most esteemed musicians: Jozef Dumoulin on keys, Frank Deruytter on saxophone, and Dre Pallemaerts on drums. Formed with a shared vision of pushing the boundaries of jazz, they bring together decades of collective experience and innovation.

Drawing from their diverse backgrounds and influences, Zwornturf’s music is a fusion of manic bebop, offbeat hard-bop, or even heavy metal swing full of finesse. Their performances testify to the power of collaboration, and their adventurous sets, brimming with virtuosity, create a lasting impression
Deruytter’s ingenious compositions provide the perfect playground for the trio to excel, both as group or as soloists. The mighty tenor sax softly crooning and then belting out loudly, the piano and synths in overdrive, sprinkling clean funk lines à la Herbie Hancock, and then the unexpected twists or subtle percussion guiding the music… 
Fireworks guaranteed!
