“Jazzrausch Bigband is making jazz sexy again” - Bayerischer Rundfunk
The ensemble’s ingenious mix of techno and big band jazz has proved to be just as accessible to people listening to the band from the comfort of their seats in a concert hall as it has to those sweating it out on the dancefloor.
Since 2015 Jazzrausch Bigband have been in residence at Harry Klein in Munich, a club renowned for its house and techno acts as well as for its stunning live visuals; this cooperation between a techno club and a big band is a truly unique one.
DownBeat magazine singled out not just the band’s “high-voltage performances” and “party atmosphere” but also the amount of experimentation going on.
LP pressed on 180g vinyl.
