The bigband “kicks `n sticks” presents a combination of swing and contemporary bigband jazz with fascinating energy and dynamics. The band, which has already performed with soloists like Herb Geller and Dusko Gojkovic recorded on “On a clear day” eight arrangements by bandleader Frank Runhof and one by trombone player Felix Fromm. Runhof has already arranged for jazz stars like Arturo Sandoval, Herb Geller, Benny Bailey and Johnny Griffin. This bigband which was founded three years ago features a lot of great young soloists from Mannheim area like saxophonist Olaf Schönborn, Felilx Fromm (tb), Christoph Neubrunner (p) or Christian Scheuber (dr) who is also the drummer of Regina Litvinova’s “Extreme Trio” (ROD 06). Saxophone player Olaf Schönborn can also be heard on the CDs of “Changes” (JAZZ’n’ARTS RECORDS 0100), Fritz Münzer Tentets (JAZZ’n’ARTS RECORDS 0200) and his quintet “acoustic affaire” (JAZZ’n’ARTS RECORDS 1303)
