In 1989, I was inspired by a theatrical job as an orchestral musician in the "Threepenny Opera" for a closer look at Kurt Weill's music. Why not cultivate the same free dealings (in terms of improvisation and arrangement) with Weill pieces, as our American colleagues did and do with their musical heritage, perhaps by Gershwin or Porter? A new band had to come! The ball star setting would have sounded too similar to a Weil orchestra. Kurt Weill's instrumental concept 1928 was that of a dance band, I should do so in 1989 too. An old companion, Manfred Rahier on drums, is allowed to "finally keep it clean", very fitting to the rhythmic intensity of the Lothar Galle-M. spread on the electric bass.
