Originally a quintet, Ping od started out as an attempt to blend progressive metal with jazz. Soon it changed into something else, but the initial idea and energy is still there. In 2022 the band was made into a sextet by the addition of John O’ Gallagher on alto saxophone.
Ping o.d. will release its debut on Whirlwind Recordings on September 8th 2023.
Line up: Roeland Celis (guitar, compositions), Sylvain Debaisieux (tenor sax), John O’ Gallagher (alto sax), Karel Cuelenaere (piano), Cyrille Obermüller (double bass), Gert-Jan Dreessen (drums).
