Big Bandits & Sabine Kühlich

Jazzwalk feat. Sabine Kühlich

Jazzwalk ist der Titel des neuesten Programms der Big Bandits mit der Sängerin Sabine Kühlich. Zahlreiche eigene Kompositionen und Arrangements sowie einige extra für sie geschriebene Stücke bilden das Rückgrat dieses Programms.
Dabei überzeugen die zum großen Teil auf deutsch vorgetragenen Songs nicht nur durch den souveränen Jazzgesang der inzwischen auch international arrivierten Sabine Kühlich, sondern berühren auch durch die Texte, die viele kleine Geschichten aus dem Leben der Künstlerin transportieren. Inspirierter Vocal-Big-Band-Jazz.

Sabine Kühlich gilt als eine der talentiertesten europäischen Jazzsängerinnen. Seit Abschluß ihres Gesangstudiums in Amsterdam und New York singt sie in zahlreichen profilierten Jazz-Projekten, unter anderem mit der Bebop-Legende Sheila Jordan. Konzertreisen führten sie nach Südostasien, Brasilien und regelmäßig nach New York. Sabine Kühlich hat 2008 den 1. Preis der International Montreux Jazz Voice Competition gewonnen. Sie unterrichtet Jazzgesang am Conservatorium Maastricht und lebt verblüffenderweise in Aachen.
