Saxophonist and bass clarinetist Toine Thys has belonged to the Belgian jazz top for two decades. When he is not making his own music for a while, he is in the studio with Reggie Washington, Ben Monder and Jozef Dumoulin, among others. In short, the perfect profile to watch over the Club Stage on the last day of Jazz Middelheim – in three different guises.

As with Overseas, his collaboration with the Egyptian oud player Ihab Radwan. “Only those who have epilated literally every hair on their body will not feel anything standing upright when the two are busy,” wrote the French magazine Culture Jazz, after watching Overseas at work. “It was as if they were collectively hypnotizing you.” How? By spicing ancient Arab traditions with Brazilian rhythms and European classical music – thanks to percussionist Ze Luis Nascimento and cellist Annemie Osbourne respectively.
