Concert review: Jazzfest Bonn

The evening began with a look on the future of big band culture: agglomerated prowess, a singular sound, fantastic arrangements and outstanding soloists all created a sonic experience that is almost impossible to put into words – but maybe into images, the kinds you know from the cinema greats

The whole thing is undercoated by a tenebrous, musuclar and archaic sound, crowned by sporadic solos that bring some light into this diabolical dark.

An experience – not just regarding the evening but the whole festival
