It was actually only a matter of time before singer Fatima Spar made her wish come true and started a collaboration with a big band.
In these times shaken by the crisis and budget cutbacks, a concatenation of fortunate circumstances created an opportunity for her to record with a big band. Songs were written, composed and arranged, and before they knew it, Fatima Spar and the Jazz orchester Vorarlberg found themselves in a fantastically equipped ´70s schlager music studio in Lichtenstein.
The resulting program moves between the elements of jazz, swing, and pop, occasionally rubs against inserts belonging to the genre of minimal and electronic music, using with an immense pleasure the almost infinite tonal possibilities a modern big band can offer.
Spielboden Dornbirn has been a regular spot of the concerting activities for both Fatima Spar and Jazzorchester Vorarlberg, so it is only natural that the first joint concert should take place in Dornbirn.
Fatima Spar and Jazzorchester Vorarlberg will premiere their music at the Spielboden, and present the album comprising of almost entirely new material written and composed by Fatima Spar and her long time music partner Philipp Moosbrugger.
