The Belgium Flat Earth Society presents cinematic music resounding the echoes of the Mingus Big Band. FES consists of former members of two defunct Belgian bands: Fukkeduk and X-Legged Sally. The orchestra, led by clarinetist and tenor saxophonist Peter Vermeersch, draws from various musical traditions. Swing, mambo, Latin, cabaret, chanson, free jazz an R&B are ingeniously interwoven. The album FES-isms, a compilation of the best music of their last four albums, is full of music departing in all directions. And, luckily, always in the right direction at the right time. Many of us are, be it unaware of the fact, familiar with the music of Vermeersch and FES: he wrote the soundtrack for the movie Minoes.
