A delayed flight, a chance meeting at an airport waiting area brought Belgian pianist and composer Ivan Paduart together with American tenor sax Bob Malach. That meeting led to a partnership which, todate, yielded two albums.
The 1st one, "White Nights" (with also Toots & Philip Catherine participating), has taken Ivan into new grounds of different style.
Prolific he is allright, after earlier more electric period, he is now into a very mature composing and playing. Always surrounded by superb musicians he is now established among the Belgian elite pianists/musicians. Very dynamic, entrepreneur and ever searching he has traced a route constantly pointing upwards. (I.O.)
