Herbert Pixner & The Italo Connection

Collepietra/Steinegg, Karneid/Cornedo all'Isarco, Dolomites Region Eggental

Herbert Pixner and his glorious six are without a doubt the Who's Who of the South Tyrolean music scene. Grooved in between Morricone, Tarantino and Celentano, it escalates into a wild mix of Jestofunk, Zawinul and Rimini Disco. There is improvisation ad nauseam. There is dancing. It gets hot. And it gets loud! Together with the Italo Connection, Pixner dedicates himself to the compellingly swinging, blackly weird alpine jazz rock funk: "Sometimes the music is powerful, sometimes restrained, sometimes it looks at the earth, sometimes at the stars. Sounds that shine!" This is how bandleader Pixner encircles the two-hour programme with which the composer and his Italian-Ladino-South Tyrolean troupe make sold-out halls smile and dance. While Sax-Martl shines as an emcee and saxophonist, the other "changes every minute between clarinet, flugelhorn and the diatonically tuned Styrian harmonica... Bossa, Volare or Breaking Bad? Anything goes! Above all, fast, and always somehow different than before. The evening is rich in changes, pieces and styles are made fun of and reworked, bass, drums and percussion stand on an equal footing with keyboard, guitar and the aforementioned instruments. Mischievous and nimble at the same time, Herbert Pixner and his Italo Connection pull out all the stops of their skills, and there are quite a few..." "The band has soul, rhythm and heart. But above all, a lightness that is infectious. And a power that bends every critic's pen."
