In 2019 the Bundesjazzorchester will dedicate itself to the musical work of the Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band. The ensemble around the American drummer Kenny Clarke and the Belgian pianist and arranger Francy Boland was formed in 1961 on the initiative of Pierluigi "Gigi" Campi, who was born in Italy and lives in Cologne. He promoted and produced the Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band, which for years set standards in Europe and beyond as an independent and unmistakable voice of jazz. More than 250 arrangements of handwritten original notes from the Clarke-Boland Big Band have been in the possession of the Bundesjazzorchester since 2018. From this inestimable pool, Jiggs Whigham has chosen a selection of special titles, complemented by exclusive arrangements for the BuJazzO vocal ensemble. Darmon Meader, a member of New York Voices, has arranged two titles exclusively for the Bundesjazzorchester.
