The trio led by Igor Gehenot won the Sabam’s youth jazz award in 2011. The recognition was justified. The pianist, born in 1989, has progressively established himself as a major talent on the Belgian and European scenes.
After recording the first album «Road Story» (Igloo New talents, 2012), Igor toured extensively in Belgium and elsewhere (Jazz A Vienne, Mexico Festival…).
In 2014, he presented the new album «Motion», still featuring Verbruggen on drums but with Philippe Aerts as the new partner on double bass. Inspired by his blue note contemporaries, the trio plays an eclectic repertoire where delicate lyricism nicely balanced by up-tempo and groovy tunes. Gut-wrenching.
