It's guaranteed to be funky and spacey when the Frankfurt Radio Big Band devotes itself to the music of Sun Ra and George Clinton, among others. Worlds meet in the conception and musical realization of the source material: Samúel Jón Samúelsson, big band leader, arranger and trombonist from Reykjavik, is a specialist in Afro-beat and funk and makes the musical legacy of the Afro-American jazz and funk legends tangible for the Frankfurt Radio Big Band. As a brilliant "match" for this evening, the Swedish-Ethiopian experimental vocalist Sofia Jernberg could be won as a guest singer, who has gained an excellent reputation as an improviser and performer in recent years.

As early as the 1920s, Eduard Künneke emphasized that only radio offered a composer the chance to bring together the sound worlds of orchestra and big band. The works in this program show that this opportunity and the interest in it have continued: Rolf Liebermann composed for Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) in 1954, Mátyás Seiber for HEssischer Rundfunk (hr) in 1959, and the new work by Steffen Schleiermacher was commissioned by Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk (MDR). It is only fitting that Dennis Russell Davies has a great affinity for the American roots of the big band sound as well as for European experiments in style.

Return To Forever

Ende der weiteren Informationen

"Return to Forever" is a milestone when it comes to fusion jazz. The album of the band of the same name was published by the German Label ECM in 1972. It was the U.S.-American jazz pianist and composer Chick Corea who started the project and kept developing it until the end of the 1970s. In 2008, the band successfully reunited for one last tour: For more than two months, Corea and his fellow musicians travelled through the U.S. and Europe. A concert trip that climaxed in an outstanding performance at the famous jazz festival in Montreux. Next to Corea, it was musicians such as the bassist Stanley Clarke and the guitarist Al Di Meola who largely contributed to the extraordinary sound of the band: a jazz fusion project between Latin jazz, soul and jazz rock. The conductor John Beasley, who has already successfully realized projects such as "MONKestra" or Somi Kakoma’s "Petite Afrique" with the Frankfurt Radio Bigband, will take over the musical direction of this tribute and also write the arrangements.
