Erik Truffaz - Jazzfest Bonn @ Bundeskunsthalle Bonn | Bonn | Nordrhein-Westfalen | Germany
(Bundeskunsthalle | 15.5.2015) The profile of the WDR Big Band, a ‘cultural orchestra’, as a band specialising in premières is defined through the constant development and performance of new programmes within a stylistically broad range. At the same time, the internationally cast big band has a special relationship to European traditions, especially to jazz ‘made in Europe’. Now the band goes on tour with French trumpeter Erik Truffaz. ‘Face to Face’ is the title of their joint project, in which the music by Erik Truffaz is transferred to the WDR Big Band. All titles are arrangements of his compositions, and at the same time the great trumpeter will himself act as a soloist.

‘Face to Face’. Masterly trumpet with electronic and groovy big band sound
