I know noble accents
And lucid, inescapable rhythms;
But I know, too,
That the blackbird is involved
In what I know.
(Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird)
Wallace Stevens

Politisch, nachdenklich, humorvoll, gefühlsbetont und vor allem swingend ist die Barbara Bruckmüller Big Band nun wieder auf der Bühne zu sehen. Lieblingsstücke sowie neue Musik werden den Abend füllen. Präsentiert werden Barbara Bruckmüllers Kompositionen in ausgewählter Besetzung, die über die Jahre zu einem formidabel eingespielten Ensemble zusammengewachsen ist. The blackbird knows them all. (Pressetext)

I've been a fan of Barbara and her band for a couple of years. I love her sensibility as a composer. She's deeply embedded in the jazz tradition, but is by no means bound by it. Her compositions happily embrace other influences; the sounds that she creates are fresh, gorgeous, soulful. Not surprisingly, her band attracts fantastic musicians. (John Edwin Mason)
