04.08. 2011. HGM Jazz Orchestra

Any of us who have been to Grožnjan during the 1980s will remember a young saxophonist who used to drop in on every room, showing an interest in absolutely everything, from morning till evening. This was Sigi, always carrying his saxophone and wearing a hat which serves as his trademark even today; persistent, organized, and interested. I know that, back then, we all said: "This young man will go places!"
Sigi went home to Austria and we did not hear from him for a while, now he has returned with his great orchestra! The "Big Band Sud" has hosted many famous jazz soloists under his leadership. That was how Sigi's wonderful career as a bandleader, saxophonist, teacher, producer, and organizer started.
Several years later, Sigi has returned to Grožnjan, and to HGM, as a teacher of orchestral jazz.  This is where the story that we've been following for the past 8 seasons of the HGM Jazz Orchestra concerts began. These concerts have hosted some of the world's most famous arrangers, conductors and soloists, so we might as well claim this has created a sort of a "Who's who in jazz today" list.
This is the third Big Band concert at this year's Jazz Is Back - BP Festival, the HGM Jazz Orchestra today makes a great and a recognized Big Band, and Sigi Feigl is back in Grožnjan.
