The Erling Kroner New Music Orchestra (Denmark)
The Beijbom Kroner Big Band has been discontinued as of the end of 2004 after ten exciting years, because Lars Beijbom decided to resign from the band to pursue other artistic endeavours. Without Lars and his music there of course can't be a Beijbom Kroner Big Band and therefore no continuation.
However it was decided by a contingent of ex-BKBB-ites to build a new musical organization on the remnants of the Beijbom Kroner Big Band, carrying on the Erling Kroner legacy of tango, jazz and latin musics, under the sole leadership of Kroner, who will also step in front of the band to conduct and play solos. The composing/arranging chores will be handled by the new band's chief arrangers Kroner and bass trombonist Niels Gerhardt. The band's book will be based on Kroner's enormous book and new music by Gerhardt and others.
