Michael Gibbs und die Big Band der Hochschule Luzern

Michael Gibbs is one of the most influential composers of the last 50 years. He has worked with many of the leading lights of the music world including Pat Metheny, John McLaughlin, John Scofield, Michael Mantler, Mike Stern, Joni Mitchell, Whitney Houston and Peter Gabriel. He has always been eclectic in his musical tastes and his work has spanned many genres. His work derives from many and diverse sources - rock, pop, jazz, classical. His ability to draw on these influences and his skills as a big band arranger are legendary. Mike's visionary approach to music, reaching across boundaries and allowing influences to come from just about anywhere, is highly relevant in today's music culture.
