Christina Fuchs and Caroline Thon are leading representatives for contemorary, large-format jazz.
Their ideas are surprising, new, fresh and together they form an ensemble that goes far beyond the term big band involving electronics as a supporting element. The two women from Cologne have two decades of experience in conducting large orchestras and, in terms of content, stand for a modern and unusual composition style for contemporary jazz ensembles.
