Started in ’75 the famous Waso Quartet (named after his first born) what resulted in a true revival of the Hot Club music. Renowned Brassens interpreter. Projects and recordings round Sidney Bechet, Gipsy Music, New-Orleans jazz, musette, chanson… And as tradition once was, he passed the ‘craft’ onto his children. Read more on Last.fm
Koen De Cauter: more than 35 years live music of great diversity, about 30 cd’s (not counting the many LP’s he recorded in the 70’s – 80’s) under his name. Started in ’75 the famous Waso Quartet (named after his first born) what resulted in a true revival of the Hot Club music. Renowned Brassens interpreter. Projects and recordings round Sidney Bechet, Gipsy Music, New-Orleans jazz, musette, chanson… And as tradition once was, he passed the ‘craft’ onto his children.

This family ensemble was created in 1990 as a little project. What once started as a side-project from with only occasional gigs became after a while the core of most of the activities from this exceptional family. Meanwhile Waso, Vigdis, Dajo and Myrddin are after about 15 years experience very strong musical personalities on there own. If Koen brought the experience and taste his kids brought new energy and angles… Hot-Club, Swing-Jazz, Chanson and Gypsy-music were extended with Flamenco, contemporary-Jazz and World-music.

Standards, songs, own compositions… Light but expressive, dark but with humor, heavy but dreamy… arrangements but mostly straight improvising. This band has an own body and soul as musical entity. After a lot of recordings in different band and combinations they finally released an album together in 2003: Ulysse. WASO is also the colloquial name for the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra. ----------------- Koen De Cauter richtte in '75 het befaamde Waso Quartet op wat zorgde voor de heropleving van de Hot-Club muziek in de lage landen. Zeven lp's en acht cd's volgden en Waso Quartet werd een graag geziene groep op ontelbare podia in België, Engeland, Scandinavië, Nederland, Duitsland, Zwitserland, Frankrijk, Portugal, USA, Fiji, Nieuw Zeeland ...

Waso Quartet bleef een vernieuwende groep, zowel qua het overschrijden van genres als door haar gestadig evoluerende bezetting... Nu, bijna 30 jaar na het ontstaan heeft deze groep zichzelf eens temeer heruitgevonden. Vier uitmuntende muzikanten met een diep besef van de essentie van Django's muziek die ze bestuiven met een grote veelzijdigheid van genres: Tzigane, musette, chanson, klassiek, folk en zowel New-Orleans als swing - en hedendaagse jazz... Ritmegitarist Xavier Bronchart zorgt voor het solide fundament dat samen met de formidabele groove van Dajo De Cauter de nodige swing creëert waarop de uitmuntende muzikaliteit van Tcha Limberger en Koen De Cauter tot bloei kan komen.

Van deze nieuwe bezetting verscheen in 2004 de cd "Ombre et Lumière". Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
