Bart Flos – Connections (2003)
Connections by Bart Flos (2003). “This CD, Connections, consists of songs and compositions that are a combination of jazz, blues and pop with dance, house, techno and jungle. As stated before it has never been my ambition to compete with all the professionals and specialists on this field. It is just my way of pointing into possible directions of collaboration and new fusion of styles. Ultimately I hope to be able to connect and do more projects with musicians that have specialised in this field and in these new forms of music.”
Bart Flos – Piano
“With this third album of a series of three as part of NextSteps Projects Stage 2 I wanted to ‘connect’ my music with more contemporary styles such as pop, dance, house, trance and jungle. It’s a great way to open up jazz music to more than jazz lovers alone. Most of the compositions were prepared in my own music studio and subsequently expended, extended, fortified, finished and mastered in the main recording studio.”
