There is history, creation and celebration in the live album of the Umlaut Big Band is a lively, subjective musical biography of Don Redman, the American multi-instrumentalist and grand master of orchestration for big bands from the 20s ... to the 60s!

This unique repertoire is the result of a thorough work of transcriptions and rearrangements from recordings and scores, including some unpublished material found in New York. Under the direction of Pierre-Antoine Badaroux, the fourteen musicians from the French jazz new avantgarde, pursue their work of highlighting forgotten figures of the jazz history, with a generous and communicative enthusiasm.

From the Harlem Public Library basement to the wooden floor of the Lavoir Moderne Parisien theater in Paris, it is a special invitation to enjoy together here and now an ageless music.
