Blue Art Orchestra

The Music of David Plate

Under the direction of Cologne pianist Georg Ruby, the Blue Art Orchestra is engaged in an intensive and individual way with the interpretation of contemporary material for jazz orchestras.
Besides compositions by Georg Ruby, the band also works with arrangements by musicians such as Gil Evans, Gian-Luigi Trovesi, Christina Fuchs, Kenny Wheeler, Pierre Bertrand and Nicolas Folmer (Paris Jazz Big Band).

The BAO is currently presenting compositions and arrangements by Cologne guitarist David Plate.
The BAO integrates the Cologne-based vocalist Barbara Barth as a feature soloist and as a "color" integrated into the band context that acts without text.
Georg Ruby is a founding member of the Cologne "Stadtgarten-Project" and can be experienced as a solo pianist, with his trio "Village Zone" and as musical partner of the Luxembourg bass clarinettist Michel Pilz. The joint duo production "Deuxième Bureau" was voted "Album of the Year" by the New York City Jazz Record.
