HOLIDAYS 2022 – RHYTHM COMBINATION & BRASSEnde der weiteren Informationen
Not many musicians have influenced the European jazz scene as much as Peter Herbolzheimer has. With his big band »Rhythm Combination & Brass« he conquered the German market in the 1970s. Their brand: a funky-groovy rhythm section and sharp wind sounds, as – apart from one saxophone – Herbolzheimer at first mainly focused on brass rather than woodwind instruments. Following the great idols of this era "Earth, Wind & Fire" and "Chicago", he thus established a new German big band sound that quickly became famous even far beyond the borders of the country. This evening, the Frankfurt Radio Bigband will play the repertoire of "Rhythm Combination & Brass" from the 1970s.

POP-ABO: JOY DENALANEEnde der weiteren Informationen
"Soul is the truth and nothing but the truth" - already James Brown knew that. And Joy Denalane has soul. Therefore, the Frankfurt Radio Bigband could not have chosen a better soloist to devote itself to the truth about love – in all its forms – since that is also to what Joy Denalane has dedicated her new album »Let Yourself Be Loved«. The CD was published by the US-American label Motown. Thus, Denalane follows in the footprints of Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder & Co and brings the soul music of the 1960s and -70s back to life. Also part of the project as a keyboarder: the producer of her album and her musical companion for many years Roberto Di Gioia. So, whether girlfriend or boy partner, whether homo- or heterosexual, whether long-term relationship or musical one-night-stand: Come, enjoy, love!
