Niels Klein & NDR Bigband feat. Jim Black – Outbound

available as CD and download

The release of this album means a lot to me. Although i just turned 40, admitting this makes me almost old, but growing up in a small city close to the sea in Northern Germany in the pre-internet era, 50 miles away from the closest record store, listening to the NDR Bigband on the radio was sometimes my only access to jazz.

This orchestra´s musicians became my heroes and the unfailingly progressive and creative style of this band helped teach me how adventurous jazz should be. Back then I could never have imagined that I would one day compose music for them. I am also thrilled to have the great Jim Black playing on this record - his music was the soundtrack of my early 20s. After working regularly as a conductor, composer and arranger with the NDR Bigband, i am proud to present this album written specially for this great band and its soloists. (Niels Klein)
