Born in 1966 in Namur (Belgium), Nathalie Loriers first received a classical musical training before becoming quickly fond of jazz and asserting herself
at the forefront of Belgian jazz pianists: "Best Young Talent" (1989 ) and "Best Young Soloist" (1990), "Django d'or belge" (1999) and "Euro Django"
If she prefers small groups (duo, trio, quartet), she does not hesitate to face up with the prestigious European Big Band or the Brussels Jazz Orchestra
of which she is the lead pianist since 2002. She also appeared as the sidewoman of Toots Thielemans, Philippe Catherine, Steve Houben, Aldo Romano
or David Linx.
As a leader, she has released more than 10 CDs from 1991 ("Nympheas") to 2016 ("We Will Really Meet Again") through "Discoveries" with Lee Konitz, the
duo "Chemins croisés" with Tunisian oudist Karim Baggili or "Moments of Eternity", which brings together a traditional jazz quartet and a classical
string quartet, with Bert Joris as soloist and arranger.
Her latest CD, "We Will Really Meet Again", featuring female Dutch saxophonist Tineke Postma and bassist Nicolas Thys ... but without drums ... offers
us sixty intense minutes marked by Nathalie's delicate touch, melodic lyricism and her acute sense of rhythm.
"The impudence of feelings, a gentle oscillation between extraverted delicacy and unveiled interiority, Nathalie Loriers combines many assets with half-tone
lyricism, subtle touch, inspiring writing and freshness of improvisation. All the more convincing as her relation to time and to silence breathes a
malicious serenity "- Alex Duthil
In the very masculine world of Jazz, this woman, pianist and Belgian moreover, has imposed herself by her energy and talent at numerous festivals in Belgium,
the Netherlands, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, England, Ireland, Brazil, the USA, Senegal and Japan!
