Euroradio Jazz Orchestra | Lukasheva/Derache/Lennig
Since 1965, the jazz editors of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) have put together a big band once a year with hand-picked jazz musicians between the ages of 16 and 30. In the Euroradio Jazz Orchestra (EJO), they play and work together and give concerts, one of which is broadcast live throughout Europe.
In this way, young musicians from all the countries of Europe (including the British Isles) come together and establish cross-border networks - in this way, what belongs together also grows together musically, a whole, young continent. This year, the orchestra stops in Cologne, where WDR Jazz Prize winner, composer and arranger Hendrika Entzian has put together a program from compositions by Charles Mingus and from her own pen, commissioned by the host WDR, that is as richly colored and sensitive as it is edgy and powerful and occasionally sarcastically sharp. The special urgency that such a border-crossing big band project has, especially this year, is underlined once again by the Odessa-born singer and composer Tamara Lukasheva as the orchestra's special guest. Following the Euroradio Jazz Orchestra, Tamara Lukasheva will present her current trio with French accordionist Laurent Derache and Cologne bassist Calvin Lennig.
