This concert centres on George Gershwin and Cole Porter; two essential authors of swing and musicals. The concert alternates between their vocal and instrumental pieces, introduced with a short presentation. Everything revolves around the concept of “fusion”: on stage big band music will mix with dance numbers (tap dancing), costumes and projections to liven up the atmosphere. The selected repertoire will include styles such as swing, Broadway musicals and Charleston, amongst others.
The Insostenible Big Band has been training the most noteworthy jazz-swing musicians in the province of Malaga for the last eighteen years, having become a benchmark of the genre in our city. Its quality and presence on stage; its freshness, good mood and connection with the audience have been a decisive stimulus for their artistic work, which has been extended with the opening of the Big Band Jazz School. This is a pioneering project in Andalusia sponsored by the Malaga Music Foundation which in its first five years has trained over 250 children and adolescents in the field of jazz and swing, some of whom currently form part of the  Insostenible Big Band.
The Band’s most recent projects, devoted to Duke Ellington & William Shakespeare, Ella Fitzgerald & Buddy Rich, the adaptation for Big Band of the musical West Side Story, the tribute to Xavier Cugat together with the singer Roko, Rock Swings and the musical portraits of Duke Ellington have all had continued success.
