The Hi-Fly Orchestra means all-acoustic jazz with a totally infectious and heavy dancegroove that always get the crowd on the floor. The great sound of 60's jazz, latin and samba, returning to its 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! THE RECORDING The debut album "Samboogaloo" is released on CD by Ajabu and on LP by Tramp Records. The tunes are recorded live on 8-track tape recorder, delivering an authentic and original sound.

Deux Concert exceptionnels en France
Paris le samedi 11 avril
Strasbourg le dimanche 12 avril

Le Hi-Fly orchestra offre une jazz tout-acoustique aux balancements intenses et communicatifs qui ne manquent jamais d’attirer les foules (le public) sur le dancefloor !

Ses rythmes profonds et rugueux émanent d’une section composée d’une contre basse, de congas et d’un piano, qui, ensemble sous-tendent les merveilleuses lignes de cuivre du sax et du trombone. La musicalité des six membres du THFO ainsi que la sonorité originale de leurs instruments, permettent de garantir l’authenticité de leur performance et l’énergie musicale en action !

Le THFO fut créé en 2005 par Jerker Kluge et Florian Riedl. Malgrès le jeune âge des musiciens somme toute, influencés par les tendances de la musique actuelle ; l’intention du groupe demeurait la production d’une musique aux sonorités autant « HIP » que celles des classiques du jazz de l’ère Blue Note. Une musique qui fait danser, sans dj, dépourvue d’électronique, de samples.

Une musique acoustique à l’état pure !
