Jimi Tenor marches on stage with his ten piece
band to perform a new live score to Mister Freedom, William Klein's
magnificent 1968 pop art parody of u.s. imperialist strategy. This
performance evolved from Jimi's solo performance back in 2003.
"Mr Freedom will rock!" says Jimi. "We
have a really slamming band and I've been quite inspired when doing
the arrangements. I've also included some older tracks in there
like Trumpcard, Asteroid Belt and a tiny bit of Downtown. Mostly
it will be same music as at the Horse Hospital couple of years ago,
but arranged for a big band. I would say it's more film music than
'big band' music."
Mister Freedom is produced by Marek Pytel of Realityfilm.
Performances take place at Gloria,
Helsinki on March 20th and Queen
Elizabeth Hall, London on March 24th.
