Sir Charles' Teatime
The established trumpeter Torsten Maaß has been working for many years with numerous big bands as a composer, arranger and guest conductor. He arranged for productions with Max Mutzke, Clueso, Ack van Rooyen and many more. Under his direction, the SWR Big Band played and recorded a selection of his life-inspired works - stylistically between modern mainstream and Bob Brookmeyer, in whose New Art Orchestra he was a founding member as a trumpeter. The present Single "Sir Charles' Teatime" is part of the album "Music written by real life" (Part I) due in August 2023.
