Album Description

Laurent Doumont has been taking his grooves out to clubs and festivals on the streets of Brussels and abroad for more than 20 years, trying to bring color to Belgium’s grey. Recently, an introspective quest of his Sicilian descent gave birth to the « Americano » project. Twelve great Italian standards joyfully adapted in the Soul Jazz idiom he cares for. A very personal project indeed. Try to imagine Celentano, Modugno or Paolo Conte covered in the manner of Marvin Gaye, Al Green or Serge Gainsbourg… If you close your eyes, you can almost hear the waves on the beaches of Capri.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
