Brel and Brussels Jazz Orchestra – that’s a captivating combination. Add the internationally renowned vocalist David Linx to the mix and you have a five-star musical project.

Brel classics like La chanson des vieux amants, Bruxelles, Le plat pays, La valse à mille temps and others, as if they were pure jazz standards: du jamais vu!
