Christoph Lehner Quintett

In the organizer's words:

In his Munich quintet, Regensburg-born saxophonist and composer Christoph Lehner has assembled an international jazz formation dedicated to the mainstream vocal jazz tradition. The quintet's music is characterized by the combination of the diverse sound language of African-American jazz with the European tradition of musical storytelling. Characteristics of the straight-ahead jazz quintet are the multilingual vocals of Italian-born singer Alice Viola (English, Italian, Portuguese) and the repertoire of original compositions and adaptations of jazz standards by the bandleader.

The quintet focuses on an effective musical structure of the pieces as well as a performance characterized by joy of playing, emotionality and improvisation.
