With the New Orleans Shakers, drummer Torsten Zwingenberger proves once again that he is at home in many varieties of jazz. He founded this band with Thomas l’Etienne in 1976 before turning to other projects after three years. Pieces from the golden age of jazz were on the program, pieces in which emotion and memorable simplicity reigned supreme. A coincidence brought the band back together in 2009 after a 30-year break. Today the New Orleans Shakers release their third CD album entitled “Black Benny”.
The New Orleans Shakers are: Thomas l’Etienne (clarinet, saxophone & vocals), Lorenz Boesche (piano & vocals), Franz Blumenthal (double bass), Torsten Zwingenberger (drums/percussion).
