The Hi-Fly Orchestra means all-acoustic jazz with a totally infectious and heavy dancegroove that always gets the crowd on the floor. The great sound of 60’s jazz, latin and samba, returning to it´s grooviest roots!!
THFO was founded in 2005 by Jerker Kluge and Florian Riedl. Though played by young musicians, who are influenced by all kinds of todays music, the intent was to create music that sounds as hip as the classic jazz records of the blue note era. Music to dance, without DJ´s, electronics or samples, just pure acoustic music!
The heavy and rough rhythms are played by drums, double-bass, congas and piano, supporting the wonderful horn-lines by sax and trombone. The high musicality of the 6 members of THFO and the original sound of their instruments assure the most authentic perfomance with absolute high-energy playing!
Group members are:
Florian Riedl (altosax, flute)
Johannes Herrlich (trombone)
Joachim Junghanss (piano)
Jerker Kluge (double-bass)
Norbert Küpper (percussion)
Hajo von Hadeln (drums)
THFO includes members of the groups riovolt, hipnosis, zonasul and liquid loop which have released several albums in the field of jazz, brazil and jazz-influenced electronica.
