Linx is arguably Europe’s most gifted and innovative jazz singer, and has been so for years. In 2007, he recorded his first big band record with his fellow citizens of the Brussels Jazz Orchestra, also one of the best bands on the Old Continent. Typical of Linx’s art is his sensitive rendering of this song, taken at a breakneck pace. Perfect time, non-conventional scat singing, splendid interaction between the vocalist and the orchestra, arranged with consummate art. Linx flies high above the traditional crooner + big band setting that has become fashionable again lately.
