Wednesday June 8th at 19:00, Huddinge Big Band will hold a Diane Shuur tribute concert in Sjödalsparken at Huddinge centrum under my direction and conducting. The concert will be the entire repertoire from the famous 1987 recording of Diane backed up by The Count Basie Orchestra, which has been a huge influence and inspiration for me.
The concert is the result of me spending many years – and quite a lot of money – on chasing down all the eminent charts presented on that record, and when I finally could get hold of the last arrangements last year, I turned to HBB with a proposal of them reproducing the concert as celebration of an influential record and performance. For this concert, the eminent Anna Häll will be the vocalist.
The concert is open for everyone; there is no admittance. Click this link for more information: Park Activities Summer Program 2022, Huddinge.
There will also be a Summer Sale, starting on June 1st, during which prices on all arrangements will be reduced by 25% and all compositions by 30%. Take this opportunity to buy great and stimulating charts for your Big Band at reduced prices, to kickstart the (now still far off) Autumn rehearsals.
