This brand new band, which will be touring Europe for the first time in 2024, has a special line-up:  The well-known German trumpeter Peter Protschka - known for his intensive collaboration with tenor legend Rick Margitza over the last ten years - is teaming up for the first time with the Australian trombone virtuoso and accomplished composer Adrian Mears. With this band, they will celebrate a sound reminiscent of the legendary Woody Shaw Quintet with Steve Turre on trombone from the early 1980s. The new program is tailored to this rare front line with trumpet and trombone and consists primarily of original compositions written or specially arranged for this new band. The high-caliber and international line-up is completed by one of Scandinavia's best piano trios, which regularly performs and records throughout Europe with world-class players such as Jerry Bergonzi, Walt Weisskopf and Tim Hagans. A special band that promises a high-quality and very unique concert event.
