The Bart Lust Quintet is known on the international jazz scene forits completely individual style and sound.

The Bart LustQuartet's repertoire is mainly provided by the band leader andarranger Lust, who has played with, among others, the New CoolCollective and the New Generation Big Band.

Add to this the individual qualities of the rest of theband and you have a super-combo with Dutch roots and aninternational sound. Last year, the Bart Lust Quintet released itsdebut album Don't Touch the Bell. Mainstream jazz fans mustn't missthis act at the North Sea Jazz Festival.
