Ben Cottrell composer, director
Beats & Pieces is young. Beats & Pieces is hip. For years now, Beats & Pieces, the British band based around the talented composer-arranger Ben Cottrell, has been offering a refreshing take on the big band of the twenty-first century. They embrace multimedia and bring a fresh new breeze to the genre with infectious flair. Beats & Pieces have already done well in the United Kingdom and are gradually gaining hold in the rest of Europe. The concert at BOZAR is a Belgian first! They have two evocative albums to their name and the third is in the pipeline. We’re curious to see what Ben Cottrell and his mates will produce next.
