B.J. Scott (lead voc & g), Thierry Rombaux (b), Daniel Johnson (g), Samuel Vetcho (drums) & special guests: Carmen Araujo Santamaria (lead voc), Charles Pasi (harm & voc), Jeff (voc & p)

THE ORIGINS :  If rock, soul and rhythm'n'blues have been BJ Scott's major influences in her teens, it were the great blues and jazz singers, to which her mother and grandmother used to listen, who coloured her childhood in the deep south of the United States.
With this exceptional line-up created for the occasion of the Brussels Jazz Weekend,  BJ and her prestigious guests pay a tribute to the mythical great voices of her native country :  Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Bessie Smith ...

Special Guests :

* Carmen Araujo Santamaria : Finalist of The Voice 2015 and partner of BJ in the show SATIN DOLLS. With her warm voice and by the simplicity of her interpretations which sometimes reminds Julie London, she embodies this music that has no age nor boundaries.

* Charles Pasi : French songwriter and brilliant harmonicist, Charles Pasi signed in 2015 on the mythical label Blue Note.  Since then, he has travelled throughout  the world, from Europe to the USA and China ...
During the summer of 2016 Neil Young himself decided to take him on his Parisian dates,  five performances at the Zenith and one Bercy.
His encounter with BJ on stage (in the company of Louis Bertignac) was immediate and intense ...  and a superb musical friendship was born.
"A great musician" Le Parisien

Jeff :  With his participation in The Voice this year Jeff has conquered a broad public.The warmth of his voice and the virtuosity of his piano playing made a huge impression !  And BJ Scott herself discovered a  musician with whom she found to have a great afinity.

Jeff Danès has already a long and intense career as a multi-instrumentalist  but above all as pianist, which has brought him to travel many countries accompanying various artists such as Jimi Hope, Nuno Resende, Norbert Krief,  Youssoun Dour, Carlou D , Nuno Resende ...

In her own personal way, Beverly Jo Scott and her guests bring back to life an era of musical sensuality filled with warmth and pure emotion.
