A unique disc from two versatile and distinctive groups of performers: The King’s Singer and the WDR Big Band perform a new jazz version of JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, arranged and directed by Bill Dobbins.
Recorded live in concert last year, this performance captures the timeless and versatile nature of Bach’s work, retaining the integrity of the original whilst presenting it in a wholly new setting. Both groups are Grammy award winners; The King’s Singers, famed for their precision and sound, and the WDR Big Band, one of Europe’s leading jazz-ensembles.
