Even while collecting experiences and new musical ideas in Amsterdam and Brussels, the young and upcoming musicians of Pol Belardi’s Force (formerly known as “4S”), have always stayed connected to Luxembourg, the country they all originate from. The first time the quartet played together in its first lineup (with David Ascani on saxophones) was a spontaneous concert at a local festival in 2009, and the chemistry felt right straight from the beginning. After some writing, rehearsing and searching for the right sound and energy, the result is a fresh blend of modern improvised music, drawing influences from alternative rock, pop and hip-hop, without forgetting the classical and jazz tradition. A first full-length album was released in January 2013, featuring a dozen of Pol Belardi’s compositions. RESOLUTION REVOLUTION JULY
As of November 2013, Pol Belardi’s Force had the pleasure to welcome a new member to the band, namely the very talented saxophone player David Fettmann. Seeing this change not as a loss but as a serendipitous opportunity to explore new ways of interplay and fresh sound textures, the band released a new album in 2014 entitled “Delusions of Grandeur”. So convince yourselves of the sonic experience given by the quartet, showing through their original compositions a unique approach to modern jazz with crisp and strong grooves, warm harmonies, gentle melodies, clever use of space, tension and release, different moods and a big amount of interaction and fun!
