Al-Umni Big Band live at Jazzclub Unterfahrt, Munich, May 15, 2017

REMEMBER … „We don’t play Dixieland, we don’t play Glenn Miller, we don’t play Avantgarde, only Swing Music Pur”. Das war das Motto des 'Kreuzritters des Swing' Al Porcino und ist die Losung seiner Band, die heute meisterhafte Charts aus der Feder der berühmtesten Big Band Komponisten und Arrangeure zum Klingen bringt. Zur Alumni Big Band zählen Meister ihres Faches. An den Trompeten: Florian Jechlinger, Franz Weyerer, Ralf Hesse, Peter Tuscher; Posaunen: Gerd Fink, Johannes Herrlich, Jürgen Neudert, Auwi Geyer; Saxophone: Thomas Bouterwek, Thomas Faist, Thilo Kreitmeier, Till Martin, Michael Lutzeier; Rhythmus: Claus Raible, Thomas Stabenow, Michael Keul; Gesang: Annette Neuffer & Nina Plotzki. "SWING ist ein wundervoller Zaubertrank", sagte Al immer, kosten Sie heute Abend davon!

"Schwing Music pur!" So lautet das Motto dieses Abends im Zitat des Altmeisters Al Porcino. Der schon zu Lebzeiten legendäre und 2013 verstorbene Leadtrompeter Al Porcino spielte seit 1943 mit allen namhaften Jazz-Orchestern und ist auf unzähligen stilbildenden Aufnahmen zu hören. 1977 fand der in München seine Wahlheimat. Sein jahrzehntelang durch Praxis und Erfahrung gestähltes Know-How, sein kompromissloser Swing, sein geschmackvoller Trompetenstil, sein unbestechliches Timing und nicht zuletzt die Sammlung seiner 100 besten Big Band-Arrangements hatten einen maßgeblichen Einfluss auf die deutsche Jazz-Szene. So kommt es, dass beinahe jeder Big Band-Musiker in Deutschland direkt oder indirekt sein Schüler war. Einige von ihnen - heute selbst Jazzgrößen - versammeln sich heute unter der Leitung von Roger Rhodes, dem langjährigen Weggefährten und Bassisten der New Yorker Band Al Porcinos. Denn heute wird gefeiert: der 91. Geburtstag des großen Trompeters, sein großartiges Bandbook und natürlich der "Schwing - it's a wonderful tonic". (Text ML)
