Billie Davies' Hand In Hand In The Hand Of The Moon Inspired by Artist Serge Vandercam

Drummer Billie Davies pays homage to Danish-born Belgian artist Serge Vandercam in this exciting free-form adventure. Hand In Hand In The Hand Of The Moon is a musical symphony inspired by Vandercam's exquisite creations. Davies says it is, “The painter influenced by the drummer and the drummer influenced by the painter over a period of three days of the full moon." Born in Belgium and now living in New Orleans, she continues “A collaborative work, conceived in 1995 resulting 20 years later in a series of 8 paintings and a jazz symphony of eight musical movements."

This music was recorded 'live' in one take on an afternoon in April. For each movement, the corresponding actual painting was hanging on the wall, visible to all musicians, in bright light. True art.

Branden Lewis - trumpet

Billie Davies is an American female jazz drummer and composer best known for her avant-garde and avant-garde jazz compositions since the mid nineties, and her improvisational drumming techniques she has performed in Europe and in the US.

Davies was born in Brugge, Belgium and mostly grew up on the Belgian Coast, Europe, at the North Sea.

She has had a love relationship with rhythm and drums ever since.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
