The Big Sound

thu 31 jul 2008 03:00 
Genre: Big Band
Composer: Bob Brookmeyer

Ever since Bob Brookmeyer moved from Kansas City to New York in 1952, he has busied himself with (aside from piano and later valve trombone) composing and arranging. In recent years it has mainly been European orchestras that have profited from this, such as The New Art Orchestra that came about in Lübeck. Brookmeyer hopes to celebrate his 80th birthday towards the end of next year.
