Slim Jazz

Slim Jazz is the opposite of a Big Band: Christian Benke plays guitar and at times, fretless bass while Annette Kerckhoff contributes flute and tamborine playing and Barbara Streidl plays stand-up bass and occasionally the Ukulele. All three are vocalists, supported by Thomas Bouterwerk on saxophone.

Their live repertoire consists of old Swing standards and Bossa Nova creations dressed in a new gown as well as songs by Tom Waits the Babyshambles. Sometimes they swing, sometimes they come across a little more „folksy“ while, at other times adding a touch of classical music.
