Notes & Reviews:

The advent of American jazz and dance music in Europe was a gift from the gods for young composers hungry to find new paths and means of expression. Popular dance music has long been a source of inspiration for 'serious' composers. The Charleston meant as much to composers of the 20s and 30s as the Sarabande did to Bach and the Polonaise did to Chopin. Jazz represented a radical break with the traditional and echoed the elated expectations that had replaced wartime suffering. This CD bears witness to the 'jazz fever' that swept across Europe during this period. The Ebony Band, founded in 1990 by Werner Herbers, specializes in modern, adventurous music primarily from the first half of the 20th century.
