Act Family Band

March 2017 saw 34 European jazz and new music stars associated with Germany’s inclusive ACT record label play a day-long concert to celebrate 25 years since its first release. These nine tracks capture the exuberant mix of rock-climax burnups and unpredictability improv. Nils Landgren’s stoic vocals on Send in the Clowns and the Crusader-like funk of Walk Tall, are all examples of ACT’s broad appeal. Adam Baldych’s fusion crescendo on Quo Vadis, which is a fusion of rock-climax burn-ups and unpredictable improv, also demonstrates ACT’s universal appeal. Emile Parisien, saxophonist, and Joachim Kuhn, pianist legends, make some of jazz’s most spontaneous moments. Andreas Schaerer’s falsetto and percussive effects on the groove-shifting b are some examples.
