The Concert Event of 2008
The Berlin Jazz Orchestra, Frankfurt Strings and Berlin Voices, conducted by Jiggs Whigham, revived the world-famous songs in this live performance.
Against the backdrop of a series of concerts from the years 2006 and 2008 the recording on 12 February 2008 in Frankfurt a. M. in the main concert hall of the “Alte Oper” is now available in a digital version for downloading and streaming.

Soloists Ack van Rooyen (flugelhorn/trumpet), Herb Geller (saxophone/flute), Jiggs Whigham (trombone), Ladi Geisler (bass guitar) and jazz singer Sylvia Vrethammar – who had all worked with Bert Kaempfert in the past – as well as special guests Marc Secara and pianist Joja Wendt provided a refreshingly new presentation of Bert Kaempfert’s timeless music. Jörg Achim Keller wrote the arrangements for these top-class artists. An impressive homage of the very first order!
