Elvis Costello & The Imposters
He has been at the top of the music business for three decades, has frequently reinvented his music and his intense and passionate live performances have won him wide acclaim. Elvis Costello is one of those rare artists who like to test new musical waters and manage to do so successfully. From an ‘angry young man’ in the punk and new wave scene of the 1970s, Costello progressed into a versatile musician whose music encompasses a wide range of styles, including country, soul, jazz, pop, rock and soundtrack music. His unforgettable songs and sophisticated arrangements have earned him respect and recognition from music lovers, fellow musicians and international critics alike. In 2006 Costello shared the stage with Allen Toussaint, making Gent Jazz history with a memorable two-and-a-half hour concert that left the audience in tears after a heart-rendering version of ‘I want you’.
On 20 July, the Gent Jazz Festival will serve up a healthy portion of musical soul food.
