Ernie Wilkins Almost Big Band

Kongens Have , København K

Free admission

The Ernie Wilkins Almost Big Band live-premieres the 1956 RCA Records release The Drum Suite.

The music is an overlooked classic from the hey days of big band music. Count Basie-arrangers Ernie Wilkins and Manny Albam co-wrote this suite that needs no less than four drummers on stage.

Wilkins founded his Almost big band in Copenhagen in 1980, and today it is led by Nikolaj Bentzon and Benny Rosenfeld.
