The Jelle Van Giel group is a septet based in Belgium, Antwerp. In 2015, the band released his debut album 'Songs For Everyone' to the world. The album was received very well. Now, Jelle Van Giel Group will release a new album that takes the listener back in tow: 'The Journey'. You recognize in eight compositions again the inspiration Jelle took from daily life, but also from overwhelming travels and other experiences. The Journey is a trip through enchanting musical landscapes where everyone feels at home.

Egor Doubay– Tenorsax

Tom Bourgeois – Altsax

Tim Finoulst – Guitar
