JIB Big Band – crescendo

Matthias Heyde

With Jazz into the weekend: the Big Band of the Berlin jazz institute strikes up.

With a lot of swing we celebrate the start of the second crescendo weekend. The Big Band of the Jazz Institute Berlin - JIB for short - opens with full brass and woodwind sounds, with rhythmic triplets and the presentation of various jazz standards in proven and new arrangements. An evening brimming with solo virtuosity and collaborative sonic power.
