Welcoming Ottla to the Unday family

Posted on 04 Jul 2019

Glad to welcome Ottla to Unday.

Following Dans Dans and Flying Horseman (and the odd solo-venture; see Strand and Transit), Ottla is the latest outlet for the boundless energies of Bert Dockx. Ottla was created out of Bert’s desire to reconnect with his background in jazz and improvisation. He gathered an outstanding sextet with an unexpected – double drummer – line up featuring:

Bert Dockx (guitar)
Frans Van Isacker (alto sax)
Thomas Jillings (tenor sax)
Nicolas Rombouts (bass)
Louis Evrard (drums, percussion)
Yannick Dupont (drums, percussion, electronics)

Ottla’s debut album is due this Fall on Unday Records, in collaboration with Werf Records
