Ingolf Burkhardt endows music award

As from 2014 the renowned music contest of the Landesmusikrat Hamburg will bestow the Ingolf-Burkhardt-Award to outstanding soloists. Name giver Burkhardt explains the idea behind this new music award: Besides perfect interplay, is the most important feature of jazz. Therefor musicians should be motivated to more often solo extemporarily. According to Burkhardt expression and originality are most important – and who could know this better than the NDR Big Band trumpeter himself?
