Archiving the music I play has never been very appealing to me. Nor am I nostalgic by nature. I like to make records as a tool to forge ahead, as a tool to push myself into new territories. So, when Rogé from el NEGOCITO Records asked me to release the Lidlboj-concert that we played more than seven years ago for the JazzCase cycle in Neerpelt, my first reaction was of surprise and wonder. Nevertheless I took some time to listen back to that concert and eventually decided to go ahead and accepted the offer. Why? Well, for various harmless reasons Lidlboj hasn't played a whole lot since that concert. Yet we had new material for at least two albums, so I thought it would be nice to share some of that music with the world. I also liked the idea of having to give up the strict control that I usually like to have when I release an album. And there was for sure some letting go to be done: most of the tunes we played that night were new, it was our first concert with bass player Dries Laheye, our first concert with a bass player altogether, and I was testing an experimental setup without Fender Rhodes (a setup that didn't last very long afterwards). But most of all, I was pleasantly puzzled by what I heard and liked the idea of releasing those sounds into the open once more. In the end, the whole process of making this record has been as enjoyable as it has been enriching. I appreciated being an almost outside listener, because of the time that went by since we made the music. I was also very happy to listen to everybody else's playing, and grateful to feel the love and dedication that they put into this band and its sound. While we are busy with our daily lives, we rarely fully realise what a great gift that is. And I was happy to notice that the emotional content and message I always wished this music to have, reached me in a very particular way, having changed myself quite a lot during these seven years. I hope it may somehow reach you too.
