Belgian group Nabou, led by trombonist and composer Nabou Claerhout, is a unique band on the jazz scene. Claerhout has a contemporary way of composing that she takes to all the way. She studied at Codarts in Rotterdam, where she was taught by Belgian jazz legend Bert Joris, and later by international legends like Dave Holland and Dave Douglas. However, NABOU has a singular style, as can be heard on the debut EP Hubert, that was released in 2019. Claerhout’s creative input is astounding and her sublime trombone playing produced a series of wonderful compositions on the album You Know. Sometimes her music has a sound reminiscent of French film noir, at other times her jazz just swings like crazy. NABOU’s music is robust yet intimate and delicate at the same time.
