Relaxed improvised swing and fiery gypsy. Open Air.
The Big Five
The Big Five are experienced musicians from the Berlin scene, they play in various so-called "big" or "small" bands in the style of the 20s / 30s ... The Big Five try to keep the swing as improvised as possible and this feeling of "relaxedness" in their music.... https://www.thebigfiveswing.com/

Chat Noir Berlin
The gipsy swing band Chat Noir Berlin promises an inspiring excursion into newly composed swing worlds. With original arrangements and fiery improvisations, the four young, charming gentlemen take the listener to breathtaking heights and magical spheres full of wit, elegance and light-hearted virtuosity. The sworn quartet of soprano saxophone, acoustic guitar, double bass and vibraphone uses melodious phrases, styles between gipsy, jazz and swing and an unmistakable band sound: whether dynamic-flashy, melancholic-cuddly, ecstatic-exhilarating, dance-bar-popular or cunning-cool, folksong-like-longing or casually-clever. Chat Noir Berlin is pure joy of playing. http://www.chatnoirberlin.com/
