Celebrating 15 years of Soulbop
Jazz trumpeter and composer Randy Brecker has helped shape the sound of jazz, R&B and rock for more than five decades. His trumpet and flugelhorn performances have graced hundreds of albums by a wide range of artists from James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen and Parliament/Funkadelic to Frank Sinatra, Steely Dan, Jaco Pastorius and Frank Zappa. The Brecker Brothers band was one of the most influential contemporary Jazz groups of all time. Not only a prolific trumpet player, Randy is widely recognized as one of the most influential writers as well. Randy has won 6 Grammys in his inspirational career that is continuing to expand.
To a generation of contemporary jazz guitar aficionados, Mike Stern is regarded as one of the true guitar greats of his generation. A player of remarkable facility whose searing lines are informed mainly by bebop and the blues while also carrying a rock-tinged intensity, Stern made his mark with Miles Davis in the early ‘80s before launching his solo career in 1985. Since then he has released 17 recordings as a leader, six of which were nominated for GRAMMY® Awards. His latest, Trip, is his first since recovering from a serious accident in the summer of 2016 that left him with two broken arms and nerve damage in his right hand that prevented him from even holding a pick. But Stern is back on top of his game, playing with typical authority and prodigious chops on this all-star outing, which features such longstanding colleagues as trumpeters Randy Brecker and Wallace Roney, saxophonists Bob Franceschini and Bill Evans (a bandmate of Mike’s in Miles Davis’ ‘comebackband’ of 1981), bassists Victor Wooten and Tom Kennedy and drummers Dave Weckl, Dennis
Chambers and Lenny White.
Das ist das NuH[u]ssel Orchestra. Mit seinem frischen Sound und treibenden Rhythmen wird die Stadtwelt auf ihren neuen Klang geeicht. Man hört die Clubs, das Nachtleben und die Straßen, auf denen die Lichter vorbeischießen. Große Klangwände hallen wider von enormen Hochhäusern und Menschenmassen rasen vorbei.
