After hundreds of shows and thousands of kilometers on tour, KUHN celebrates its 10th anniversary with a bang: The double album “Jazz is Expensive/Live in Saalfelden” will be released on October 14th by BERTHOLD RECORDS.
Live in Saalfelden features all new compositions except two old band staples Nosferatu and Maharani. The immense enthusiasm with which the musicians of KUHN FU go about their work makes this an intense but also funny record. How Kühn’s lyrics arise spontaneously on stage can be heard in The Last Tango of Harry Sanchez. For this special concert the band got extended to a sextet with John Dikeman on tenor saxophone and Tobias Delius on clarinet and tenor saxophone.
Whether in the variations on the always extremely beautiful melodies that Christian Kühn composes as a starting point for the pieces or in the free improvisations: A perfectly coordinated band develops music from the common movement that has never been heard before.
