A new trio featuring Paul Flush on Hammond Organ, Charles Loos on acoustic piano, Luc Vanden Bosch on Drums and Percussion.

The combination of piano and Hammond is rarely heard yet the two instruments go together supremely well. There is great warmth but also an amazing dynamic range, especially when used by two players who complement each other this well. The members of this trio are well known as individual performers and came together in this project just to experiment with a somewhat unexploited musical idea. They were so excited by the possibilities that Ménage Artois immediately decided to record some demo tracks in Wazif Studios. The classic inspiration for the sound is, of course, Michel Petrucciani with Eddy Louis as featured on their double album 'Conference de Presse', but the addition of percussion takes the idea into new territory and creates a new freedom for the group's improvisations.

Their debut CD is on the Mogno Music Label. Following on from the success of the 2010 Lundi d'Hortense concerts plans are under way for a second album.
