Sax player Robin Verheyen receives praise from many for being a rising star of the Belgian jazz scene. And not only our southern neighbors are fans. The fact that both Branford Marsalis and Ravi Coltrane are mentors and admirers of the young musician does say a lot. During his short career, he has already been to various jazz capitals and participated in multiple projects. Before he turned twenty-five, Verheyen had moved from Belgium, to Paris, and then to New York. The final Trans-Atlantic move appears to have given him wings. Manhattan and Brooklyn seem the ideal feeding ground for the young saxophonist. In a short while he developed into the musical hub in a number of jazz clubs. In 2008 this led to the formation of the NY Quartet with New York jazz scene heavyweights: trumpeter Ralph Alessi, bassist Drew Gress and drummer Jeff Davis. The result is adventurous and contemporary, as can be heard on Trinity, the debut album of the NY Quartet that will be released this summer.
