After studying at home Luc Vanden Bosch decided to make music his profession. From pop, rock, heavy metal, dance and classical music, and after “Beatlemania”, he arrived in the jazz world. He received various laureate prizes (Jazz Hoeilaart, Avro-Jazz contest) and this gave him the chance to play as a freelance percussionist in the BRT Jazz Orchestra under the leadership of Etienne Verschueren.

With the New Look Trio (Roger Van Ha, bass and Johan Clement, piano) he supported jazz giants such as Al Grey, Deborah Brown, Clark Terry, Art Farmer, Johnny Griffin, Toots Thielemans, Scott Hamilton, Rachel Gould, Ali Ryerson and Benny Bailey.
