Really important! Listen to our demos with headphones or good speakers!

Small speakers such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop can not possibly display the deep rich sound of the beautiful double bass, sousaphone or tuba. That is why it is so important to listen with headphones or good speakers!  

Be careful: risk of rhythmic moving! 

Turn your phone to landscape to hear the music in stereo!

The instrument of the most famous jazz musicians

The trumpet has given rise to many jazz legends. Artists like Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong and Chet Baker have all influenced the music and have gained global fame. The Jazz Centrale honors their legacy with this jazz quartet.

Clear and striking sound

The trumpet is known for its clear sound that stands out but is also beautifully balanced with the other instruments.

This sound comes fully into its own in swinging and funky jazz classics like the world famous Cantaloupe Island and Sunny . The sound of the trumpet adds an energetic layer to the line-up with piano, drums and bass. This makes the trumpet quartet wonderfully danceable and extra festive.

Velvety sound

At the same time, the trumpet can also sound velvety soft and function in the background! The example of this are our songs that you know from the album "Kind of Blue" by Miles Davis. A record that is full of atmospheric jazz and world-famous standards such as So What and Freddie Freeloader. Of course we all play these standards!

To sum up: this jazz group is ideal for the ambiance and also lovely and remarkable for the attentive listeners.
