Andres Beeuwsaert

How would a music sound if we could gather the most refined and beautiful South American traditions with jazz, classical colors and an open-minded fusion with no style? We would get Andres Beeuwsaert's music! As a matter of fact, with Andres Beeuwsaert's music, words are unnecessary and perhaps downgrading. Listening to his music, one could probably find some "touches" from artists such as Lyle Mays or Keith Jarret...but in his own South American way, Andres is always recreating music!! That's probably why Andres Beeuwsaert has already played with great musicians like Ivan Lins, Joe Lovano, Steve Khan, Hugo Fattoruso, Charly Garcia, Pedro Aznar (ex- musician of the Pat Metheny Group), Mono Fontana, David Lebon, Fats Fernandez, the Brazilian singer Tati Parra, guitarist Yotam Silberstein, Leo Genovese & Javier Malosetti, among many others. Nevertheless, Andres Beeuwsaert is not just a great pianist, but a composer of sublime and captivating masterpieces

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
