Big Band Machine – Jazz

The Big Band Machine, ex Arbia Big Band, was started in 1997 and is not a typical big band: there are no traditional sections, there is little brass but organic elements include flute and clarinet. The repertory goes beyond typical numbers for jazz orchestras ranging from Pietro Mascagni to Carla Bley/Charlie Haden, from George Gershwin to Lennon/McCartney. The director and principal arranger of the Big Band Machine is the saxophonist and clarinetist Klaus Lessmann.
