Swing, Swing, Swing – A Tribute to Benny Goodman

This concert is dedicated to Benny Goodman, one of the most important bandleaders of the swing era. In the role of the jazz musician is the Berlin-based star clarinetist Rolf Kühn. Together with greats of the European jazz scene and the NDR Big Band, and under the direction of Jörg Achim Keller who also arranged the pieces, Kühn presents Goodman’s popular classics in a modern, contemporary style. Another star guest is Émile Parisien from France, whose soprano saxophone adds another new colour.
