Doctor Gabs will be “bringing the heart of jazz” to W Doha’s Crystal Lounge this evening and tomorrow, bringing his own style of swing, jazz and boogie-woogie music on the piano. “His playing reveals the best in jazz, from its origins to today,” a spokesperson said, adding that “his music is direct and filled with warmth, joy, tenderness, lyricism and virtuosity.” The singer considers his piano playing as a “remedy” against lack of communication between human beings, and from this philosophy comes his self-titled “doctor”. Doctor Gabs, a Belgian originally from Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) who now makes his home in Lausanne, Switzerland, has performed all over the world, including at Carnegie Hall in New York, Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Victoria Hall in Geneva, Hotel de Paris in Monte-Carlo, Hotel Cala di Volpe in Sardegna, and now W Hotel in Doha. “He is an unreservedly emotional player,” added the spokesperson.
