AQUARELLE is a short wistful duo for Stefan and Ernst, beautifully played. (Kenny WHEELER)
Studies at the Jazz Studio Antwerp and at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, Ernst Vranckx, is a first prize jazzpiano winner and receives a “Special Citation for Outstanding Musicianship” from the International Association of Jazz Educators.
Kenny WHEELER is a fan of his compositions, which gave Ernst the chance to record ans album with him.
As far first prizes are concerned, Stefan Bracaval, is not outdone by him. His experience led him to a collection of first prizez at the Antwerp Conservatory. His flutes play on numerous stages and recordings. Charles Loos, Deborah Brown, Barre Phillips will allow this gifted musician to grow up in the world of jazz.
AQUARELLE is the result of a rich association. Ernst an Stefan lead us through harmonious and warm compositions in which the interprets virtuosity is revealing itself without reserve.
A production in which we find again the spirit of the best compositions of Pat Metheny.
