Jazz is very close to the heart of the multi-instrumentalist jazz musician Attila Korb, and this affinity is not only apparent in his playing style. In his work as both a soloist and band member, Attila constantly strives to disseminate his knowledge of the swing era to an ever wider audience and also present some true rarities to the general public. He has founded and assembled an international band named after an unjustly forgotten yet incredibly important figure from the early beginnings of jazz history: the bass saxophone virtuoso Adrian Rollini. Rollini was a musician in the 1920s and 1930s, in other words of the era of jazz and early swing era. He also played the piano, the vibraphone and several other instruments and worked alongside every single major musician of the time whose fame has persisted until the present day.
The concert will feature the cream of 1920s white hot jazz, with music from Bix Beiderbecke, Frankie Trumbauer, Chauncey Morehouse, Arthur Schutt and Joe Venuti - Rollini performed as a sidekick to them all. The project, which has already visited numerous cities around Europe, also evokes the great kings of swing who Rollini played alongside in the 1930s, right at the dawn of their careers, performing in the bands of Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, Bunny Berigan, Jack Teagarden and George Van Eps. Alongside Attila Korb's bass saxophone, we will also enjoy two French and two Dutch virtuoso musicians, including David Lukács, a clarinettist of Hungarian origins whose playing style is regularly compared to Benny Goodman's.
