4in1 was born out of the same intention:
To create a modern jazz group, bringing their individualities to the fore ground and creating one sound, one spirit, one unit.
Lorenzo Di Maio (guitar), Jean-Paul Estiévenart (trumpet and flügelhorn), Samuel Gertsmans (double bass) and Toon Van Dionant (drums) bring a dynamic repertoire with the common factor: interaction.
“Freshness, power, lyricism, swing, space, diversity, communication”
suit well to describe the music of 4in1.
The four musicians met each other in a natural process of playing and rehearsing. After playing together for a while, they found out that they had the same approach to jazz music.
Indeed, it is not a question to meet and play some tunes, but to listen and to understand each other and to generate a certain impulse, which acts on the audience. That impulse reverses energy on the group, as a kind of wave with the public.
The quartet plays original compositions. At the performance, the pieces are the base of musical research... And now they have just released their first album!
4in1 explores modern jazz, combining a deep swing with space and creativity. Shortly: “jazz on the waves of modern times”.
