He is characterised by his versatility as an outstanding bassist, vibraphonist, drummer and composer. Pol Belardi studied at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and the Amsterdam Conservatory and completed his master’s degree in bass guitar. The musician does not limit himself to one style or one particular instrument and is always looking for new experiences to redefine his musical vision.

    Makar Novikov is one of the most sought-after double bass players on the international jazz scene. As an accompanist and virtuoso soloist with an unmistakable bass sound, he has toured with international artists such as Jimmy Cobb, Clark Terry, Jimmy Heath, Kenny Baron, James Spaulding, Giacomo Gates, Alex Sipiagin, Isfar Sarabski and others. In 2022, the bassist moved to Italy and began collaborating with Italian musicians such as Rosario Giuliani and Maurizio Giammarco and is involved in various music projects worldwide.

    Pierre Cocq-Amann | Saxophone
    A passionate and tireless jazz saxophonist, Pierre Cocq-Amann plays all over the world and loves to combine different musical experiences. He explores world music and experiments with a variety of instruments and styles. The musician, with a master’s degree in jazz saxophone from the Maastricht Conservatory, can be heard as a sideman in numerous projects (Saxitude, Arthur Possing Quartet) and takes on the role of bandleader in the PCA Organ Trio and the Good Vibes Quartet.
