Jonas Winterhalter Big-Band

Freiburg's trumpet and bugle-player Jonas Winterhalter took a three day trip to Studio 1 to record the debut CD with his high-class big band.


Prior reason to the foundation of the band was the approaching final concert of Jonas Winterhalter's master studies. But furthermore the band gained attention in greater Freiburg, as well as in in the environment of Basel, where the band played several shows in renowned "the bird's eye jazz club". Eleven pieces, exclusively original compositions, where meant to be recorded within three days, while Winterhalter's tunes succesfully oscillated between Modern Jazz, classical and even popular music, the latter due to guitarist Johannes Maikranz' experiments with drone and ambient sounds.

Many of the musicians are also found in other ensembles such as the Sarah Chaksad Orchestra, The Ed Party Jazz Orchestra and the Lucerne Jazz Orchestra, who all made records in Bauer Studios.

Jonas also switched to bugle to play solo parts for two songs, while drummer Severin Rauch took musical directorate.

Philipp Heck once again took responsibilty for the superior sound and comfy work ethic. He will also be mixing and mastering the album together with Jonas, so it can be released in early 2017.
