Bob Mintzer (saxophone, USA) and the Latvian Radio Big Band
Bob Mintzer is a true saxophone legend, an excellent performing artist and masterful composer whose work has been repeatedly recognized by the demanding experts of the Grammy Award. Bob Mincer's name has been linked for decades to both the great Los Angeles collective of the Yellowjackets, and the Cologne-based West German Radio Big Band; this American musician's characteristic saxophone timbre and unique energy adorns innumerable recordings, and several of his compositions are considered to be jazz standards. A captivating insight into Bob Mincer's versatile creative work and stage charisma will also be provided by the “Riga Festival” June 8 concert programme in the VEF Culture Palace, during which the great talent will play alongside our own jazz masters – the experience-rich and youthfully playful of Latvian Radio Big Band.
