Wie in jedem Jahr findet auch 2011 in Bristol/England ein Filmfestival statt, das sich ausschließlich Stummfilmen widmet. In diesem Jahr sind wir mit unserem Filmmusikprojekt zu diesem Festival eingeladen worden. Am Freitag, den 28.

The Bull`s Head
Barnes/ London Slapstick 2011

JAZZ TRAIN – the Saarland Youth Jazz Orchestra at „The Bull´s Head“, Barnes on 30 January 2011, 8.30 pm
The 25 young musicians in the band, aged between 16 and 21, will play pieces from their latest CD „JAZZ TRAIN plays Cole Porter„. The two vocalists are Inez Schaefer and Laura Borchers. Co-bandleader Matthias Ernstarranged especially for JAZZ TRAIN well-known Cole Porter songs such as „Get out of town“, „My heart belongs to daddy“ or „Love for sale“, but also less known titles such as „Give him the ohlala“ or „What is this thing called love ?“. His excellent arrangements have an ageless quality, gripping and full of swing. The album was recorded by the Saarland Broadcasting Corporation in spring 2010 and will be available on the night at „The Bull“.

The band will, of course, also be performing music by other composers.

JAZZ TRAIN was founded in 1989 and has been „under steam“ ever since, introducing young people to big band music and raising the profile of jazz in general. Already ten generations of young, talented players in Saarlandhave risen through its ranks. Many of the musicians have gone on to study music and some have already turned professional. Numerous awards, four CD albums and concert tours in Germany and abroad are testimony of the success of this Saarland project run by the two music teachers, Matthias Ernst and Ernst Urmetzer.
