TONKULT MEETS… WILL VINSON feat. PROJEKT ORION
Saxofon-Star trifft auf Tonkult-Big Band!
Thursday, 20 October 2023 / 20:00 PM
Frankfurter Hof, Mainz
London-born alto saxophonist Will Vinson embarked on his career in New York at an early stage, and it has since expanded worldwide. Both with his albums and as a sideman, he has received several awards, including recognition from Downbeat Magazine. Will's saxophone playing is characterized by incredible power and dramaturgical sensibility and is characterized by his versatile, strong sound and technique. His compositions and performance demonstrate deep respect for the centuries-old jazz tradition, which he places within contemporary contexts, thus creating a unique approach and interpretation style.
PROJEKT ORION – one band, many voices. Originally founded by four composers and musicians: Vroni Frisch, Marko Mebus, Gregor Schor, and Maximilian Shaikh-Yousef. Projekt Orion is an orchestra that represents the Mainz jazz scene. It has also engaged in a diverse array of projects, including collaborations with artists such as Julian Argüelles and Frederik Köster, among others. The focus is on collaboratively creating programs for big bands, involving both guest musicians and the band itself. As part of this process, compositions will be exclusively written and arranged by musicians from the Mainz scene.
