50. Jazzwoche Burghausen 2019: Al McKay’s Earth Wind and Fire Experience
Burghausen has been a byword for jazz since 1970. For one week every March, the small town on the Salzach river turns into the German New Orleans. Ella Fitzgerald, Chris Barber, Roy Hargrove, Chick Corea and Dave Brubeck have all performed in Burghausen. The annual jazz week is one of the biggest festivals of its kind in the world. EuroArts presents a series of live recordings as well as a documentary about the legendary Jazz festival.
Built around legendary Earth, Wind & Fire guitarist, Al McKay, and a group of the best studio and road musicians Los Angeles has to offer, this project is aptly named "Al McKay´s Earth, Wind & Fire Experience".
Performing the hits of the super group's material, with the same original feeling to it, the “Al McKay´s Earth, Wind & Fire Experience" offers stunning live performances with the original EWF sound. From Al McKay's guitar, to the horn sections by original EWF trumpeter Phenix Horn and featuring the vocal section anchored by the incredible vocal talents of Tim Owens, the “Al McKay´s Earth, Wind & Fire Experience" may be the only group capable of giving you that unique funky sound, that made EWF legends in the R&B genre.
