With The Big Band project, the Flexible Intervention Squad unites a dozen or so wind players (trumpets, trombones and saxophones) with a rhythm section of piano, guitar, double bass and drums. 17 outstanding soloists put themselves at the service of a great and changeable sound for one evening.
In the repertoire this time, the insanely playful ensemble has some big band classics that the members of the Flexible Intervention Squad have been looking forward to for a long time. This special evening's program will feature many of the legendary Count Basie Orchestra's hits, such as Splanky and Li'l Darlin', as well as Blues in Hoss' Flat and many more. In addition, some new and specially made arrangements for the wonderful singer Mette Nadja Hansen will be heard. Markus Ehrlich's Flexible Eingreiftruppe presents The Big Band, another concert highlight with swinging grooves, breakneck solos, spotted ballads and powerful shout choruses in big band tutti. You don't want to miss this!
A really big thing: "The Music of Count Basie" and Mette Nadja Hansen (voc)!
In 2023 Markus Ehrlich's Flexible Eingreiftruppe will be guesting at WABE on several dates with a large cast.
