I am presenting here the collaboration of my Swiss Jazz septet called "Contradiction of Happiness" with the Jena Philharmonic conducted by Simon Gaudenz in October 2020. In November 2018 Thomas Eckardt from the German festival "Jazzmeile Thüringen" invited me to compose a set of music involving my Jazz septet as well as the Jena philharmonic. After that successful undertaking we decided to come together once more to record a full album of music and perform three concerts at the "Jazzmeile Thüringen 2020". During the rehearsals/recording days, Robert Wölfer created the 10 – minute - long video documentation displayed here.
A big thank you to everyone involved and everybody who made this big project possible!
CD Release on Intakt Records is October 2021
