The days of 9 hour rehearsals,
soundchecks, and concert in Bern pay off- Full Blast & Friends give a
strong, energized performance at a sold out concert at the
Donaueschingen Festival. The show starts with 2 sets by Peter Evans: 1st
a quintet wrestling with Jazz history from Be Bop forward, with
electronic proce; 2nd a duo with Nate Wooley, also with
electronics. In a way, the evening was a feature for the state of
contempory trumpet- Evans, Wooley, Heberer (add Axel Doerner, Magnus
Broo, and a few others and you’ve got a devastating music festival…).
Fantastic to hear the instrument played so well, so inventively.
Tremendous energy throughout from the audience and from the musicians,
the concert broadcast live on SWR. Paul Strand’s birthday:
