THE HIPSTER PROJECT
The Hipster Project is a collaboration of international artists from Belgium and Italy, working to develop a unique sound and musical performance. Based on the Hard-Bop Jazz Period, the result is an enthralling jazz band that will drive you through this East 50′ Jazz period.
We hope to present a unique kind of musical performance to the live stage, bringing audiences of all levels of musical and artistic appreciation together to connect with this musical style that reconsiders gospel and the blues.

THE HARD-BOP ERA
At the heart of The Hipster Project is a passion for the great Hard-Bop era, which blossomed in the 50s.This East American Jazz period was the most exciting and productive period, during which artists like B. Golson, A. Blakey, H. Silver, Rollins and many others composed and performed this new style of music that essentially formed their answer to the “Cool Sound” from the West. A stronger rhythmic emphasis was derived from gospel and rhythm’n’blues, while catchier refrains and more forceful solos revitalized the fundamental innovations of bebop that were not refuted but simply recast in a more accessible format. Thus bebop mutated into “Hard-Bop”.
