For All We Know
An artist in residence at Turnhout's Warande and a teacher at the Stedelijke Academie voor Muziek, Jef Neve is widely regarded as one of Europe's most talented young jazz composers. Born in 1977 and classically trained at Leuven's Lemmensinstituut, the Flemish pianist has showcased his skills in everything from orchestras to funk-pop bands, but achieved his big breakthrough when he teamed up with bassist Piet Verbist and drummer Teun Verbruggen to form the Jef Neve Trio. After releasing four critically acclaimed albums and a soundtrack for Felix Van Groeningen's Dagen Zonder Lief, he recorded 2010's For All We Know with U.S. jazz/hip-hop vocalist José James.
