TRIBUTE TO PETEREnde der weiteren Informationen
Hardly anyone has shaped the European Big Band scene as much as Peter Herbolzheimer. With his international cast "Rhythm Combination & Brass" he conquered the market in the 1970s. His trademark: a funky-groovy rhythm section and piercing horn sounds. With the Dutchman Erik van Lier, a companion from the very beginning takes over the musical direction of this homage.
