This formation ( former HB Express ) carries you on a train (the Express) through different styles such as jazz, nu-jazz, funk, soul, experimental and rhythm & blues.
It's not easy to describe the style in one name, the 'groove' takes a major place and is formed by the influence of the each of the very individually playing musicians who rather don't think in one particular style.
Hugo Boogaerts is the founder of this steaming band that exists for over 23 years now en is responsible for most of the compositions that are, once again, based on a rhythm with on top an original, or even sometimes, funny Monk-like melodies. This will not surprise you if you know that he was a member of the innovating band ‘Wizards of Ooze’ with whom he toured through Europe a great deal.
The compositions lean more and more to this great band in which his contribution had a large impact on the sound.
