Christina Fuchs / NoTango 2
Funded by Initiative Musik
NoTango is saxophonist/composer Christina Fuchs’ quartet. It is one of the more unusual ensembles in the Cologne jazz scene. This band proves that innovative jazz can be delicate, humorous, and lyrical. Their combination of jazz, ethnic music and modern compositions fascinates from the first beat.
