This young band has no regard for musical borders and preconceptions. They dare to mix everything they can in order to take the listeners on a trip into their world. Born from the freedom and beauty of a bustling marketplace where you can find everything from a turkish electronics shop to an african grocery store. The balkan background of Misho Ivanov and Srdjan Ivanovic, together with Michael Rörby's scandinavian thrown in the mix, their mutual language: Jazz, and the absence of a piano or chordal instrument gives them the space and freedom to make music that comes from the soul. Pure melody, rhythm and interplay.
Surprising audiences and competition juries, the Blazin' Quartet won the Holland Casino Jazz & Pop Award and shortly after, the Dutch Jazz Competition at the North Sea Jazz Festival 2008.
