Siggs Pack Big Band

The trumpeter Stefan Sigg from Wangen has long been a fixture in the southern German jazz scene. In addition to his active concert activities, he has also made a name for himself as a studio musician. With his big band he also presents himself as a band leader.

The Big Band consists of professional and amateur musicians, handpicked by Stefan Sigg between Lake Constance, Allgäu and Vorarlberg. The musicians present the sometimes demanding arrangements with a high level of instrumental technology: a closed phrased block chord playing, exact rhythmic precision, fat sound and a wide dynamic range characterize this band. The soloists bring a great deal of musicality and individuality to the improvisations. With a high level of playing technique, they create wide arches of tension that are supported by the dynamic interaction with the well-coordinated rhythm group.

An important part of her repertoire are pieces by the Count Basie Big Band. The swing arrangements are saturated with a strong blues feeling and are characterized by their rousing rhythmic drive. In addition to the rhythmically interesting pieces of the Thad Jones / Mel Lewis Big Band, the fast-paced jazz rock arrangements and relaxed grooving Latin numbers are particularly noteworthy: Here the band's wide spectrum between power play and lyrical delicacy is shown, which the band is always able to present confidently.
