Kris Defoort is a major figure in the European jazz music scene. He created a highly individual musical language that redefines musical traditions in an original way. His music is characterised by the encounter between classic and jazz music, and between written compositions and improvisation.
**** With Kris Defoort, each note is a gift It is incredibly inventive, deliciously poetic, full of beauty, energy and lyrical at the same time. And do not worry: it is not an ethereal music, understood only by a handful of admirers. This is good for everyone. (...) each song is a wonder and each note is a gift of Kris Defoort’s talent. Thank you to the pianist. Jean-Claude Vantroyen, Le Soir, 14.03.2012
