Belgium was quick to realize that Jef Neve has an exceptional talent. The pianist’s first album was an immediate bestseller in 2003. The Netherlands also got wind of the talented composer and back in 2007 he played at the North Sea Jazz Festival. A year later, Neve's career took off internationally with the album Soul In A Picture. In that same year he gave a concert in Brussels with singer José James which they enjoyed so much that the very next day they started recording the studio album For All We Know. Neve is renowned for the power of his playing as well as for his work as a composer and his broad view of music. He plays both jazz and classical music and composes soundtracks. In 2013 he performed a series of concerts at theaters under the title If Mozart And Monk Were Brothers – that says it all.
