After a very nice summer, it’s time for new concerts and projects during autumn! During the summer I’ve done a lot of great concerts.

From the celebration of Billy Strayhorn!

For a long time, Billy Strayhorn has been one of my favorite composers! After a couple of bars, you can hear one of those characteristic melodic motives, or a typical harmonic progression, and you know you are listening to music of Billy Strayhorn.

I’ve always loved the sound of the big band! If you can hear a great band with great players, soloists, arrangements.. That’s amazing! So, off course, I really like to play with great big bands!
