Dark Side Of The Moon in Jazz [no label, 1CD]

NDR Rolf-Liebermann-Studio, Hamburg, Oberstrabe 120, Germany; May 16-17, 2013. Excellent satellite broadcast.

Some may remember or be familiar with Us And Them: Symphonic Pink Floyd, a 1995 release performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. For the more adventurous, they might be interested in Jazz Side Of The Moon - The Music Of Pink Floyd (2008), by Sam Yahel, Mike Moreno, Ari Hoenig and Seamus Blake.

Here are Germany’s NDR Bigband with their premiere of Dark Side Of The Moon in Jazz.
