ABOUT THE MUSICIANS
Jef Neve (Belgium)

Jef, with his trio, first performed at the Adamstown Uniting Church in 2010, to a standing ovation. He returned in 2013 for a solo performance on the Stuart and Sons piano. Described by Stuart and Sons founder and piano manufacturer, Wayne Stuart, as “The greatest concert of my life – so far”
Teus Nobel (The Netherlands)
Horn player, Teus Nobel, was ”Radio 6 Soul and Jazz Talent” 2012 and won the 2015 Laren Jazz Award. He has been a soloist with the Dutch Royal Air Force Orchestra since 2010. As band leader/composer, Teus has performed across twenty countries and as section-player in over fifteen musical productions in the Netherlands and Belgium. Since 2012 has released four albums.
“Tues Nobel is one of those once-in-a-generation guys that brings it all to the table” Christian Scott (US)
“The future of jazz has risen.” Jazzism
Neve and Nobel began their creative musical journey together during production of Jef’s 2017 album, “Spirit Control”. A subsequent request to perform as a duo for a private function was more than enough to seal the duo deal.
June 2019 sees the duo performing in Melbourne, Canberra (Bungendore), Newcastle, Sydney and Brisbane.
The duo-project presents a mix of compositions by themselves, as well as some cool jazz standards, alternated with stories and chats by those two funny and verbally strong gentlemen. They never stop to challenge and tease each other on stage, so much fun to watch and listen to!
