Of all the great classical maestros of his generation, Leonard Bernstein was the key advocate of jazz. He was not only a profound authority on jazz music, he could also play it on the piano and used its elements when he composed. All the stranger that jazz musicians have practically never adapted Bernstein. These were the exact thoughts of ACT boss Siggi Loch who suggested to Nils Landgren that he create a tribute to the great 20th century composer. And Landgren didn t have to think twice about it: 'I have always been a fan of Bernstein…'. He put together an 'absolute dream team': the Bochum Symphony Orchestra, an exquisite jazz band, the world-class arranger Vince Mendoza and an authentic New Yorker: Janis Siegel from the legendary Manhattan Transfer.
