Gratitude Trio is a Belgian/French band based in Brussels known for their strength and sensitivity that opens people’s hearts. The music of this power trio is tinged with spacy sounds, African rhythms, sexy grooves, endless trances, sensitive ballads, crazy free jazz and a large dose of unpredictable.
Gratitude exists since 2010 and has performed in prestigious venues in Europe. Their two first albums « Gratitude » and « alive » released in 2012 and 2015 on the label el NEGOCITO Records have been very well received by the critics (Le Soir, De Standaard, Jazzaround) and the enthusiastic audience. The 3rd album Gratitude III was released in April 2018: new sound, new approach, but same soul. The voice and EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument) enrich the sound palette while the musicians have developed a new way to create together.
“BIRTH”, fourth and last album of the explosive Belgian-French trio on the prestigious Belgian label W.E.R.F. RECORDS , in partnership with Mercury and Collectif Koa. Jeroen Van Hereele, Alfred Vilayleck and Louis Favre worked for more than a year on this opus : a blend of sensitivity and groove, contemplative vocals and raging solos. A music that is both sophisticated and organic, with an energy and boldness that characterize them.
