INSOMNIA BRASS BAND Awarded the German Jazz Prize as "Band of the Year" in 2023
INSOMNIA BRASS BAND
Anke Lucks - trombone
Almut Schlichting - baritone saxophone Christian Marien - drums
"...it's great fun, you want to pogo to it. More of this please!" Hans-Jürgen Schaal, Jazzthetik
"Calypsomanic lust for life in XXL" Rigobert Dittmann, Bad Alchemy
Lucks, Schlichting and Marien are the miniature version of a brass band: they transcend their compact size with a raw, exuberant sound that you would expect from a much larger ensemble. Juggling alternating roles between rhythm and melody, they traverse a beguiling landscape of free jazz, funk, punk rock and New Orleans street jazz. Together, they open up their own pieces in all directions, driven by a mixture of improvisational drive and perfectly interlocking grooves.
Since 2017, the Insomnia Brass Band has performed numerous concerts in jazz clubs and at festivals, received several grants from the Musikfonds and the Berlin Senate and released two CDs on Tiger Moon Records.
In 2023, the trio was awarded the German Jazz Prize as "Band of the Year".
