For over forty years, the musicians’ association Les Lundis d’Hortense has endeavoured to spread and promote Belgian jazz. Mirroring this music, the values of the association are diversity, integration, sharing, encountering and discovering every style and form of jazz played by renowned musicians or up-and-coming talents.
Since the birth of jazz, jam sessions have brought together music lovers, skilled improvisers and neophytes steered by sheer curiosity. These sessions, which allow musicians to share, create and improvise around the vast repertoire of jazz standards, are an essential keystone of the history of jazz. As one of the pioneering cities of jazz in Europe, Brussels has always been the home of a lively tradition of nocturnal and festive jam sessions… It’s time to be part of it!
