Jazz Anchor is a formation of Manten Van Gils with co-founder and guitar player Peter Verbraken. Both Peter and Manten have composed and arranged music to fit in this unusual but very tasteful combination of instruments. Influences of Joe Pass, Phil Abraham, Chet Baker...
The band name is linked to the city of Mechelen and its brewery 'Anker', but also refers to the cooperation with other performers, or to locations where we'll throw out the anchor!
Jazz Anchor is expandable to a trio (with double bass), to a quartet (with double bass and drums) and even to a quintet (with an extra horn).
