25 YEARS OF DE-PHAZZ [D]
feat. PAT APPLETON & KARL FRIERSON
De-Phazz, the German cult band of lounge music, will do the honors at the "New Colours Festival" on the occasion of their 25th anniversary. Singer Pat Appleton will be there with her soulful voice, as well as singer Karl Frierson. The name De-Phazz was not chosen by band founder Pit Baumgärtner by chance. It stands for "Destination Future Jazz". At the end of the 1990s, the future of jazz was clearly moving in the direction of pop. NuJazz, lounge jazz, triphop and all the other new growths conquered a new club culture in which the door for jazz elements has been wide open ever since. De-Phazz did not rest on their laurels, but became one of the most successful German bands with worldwide sold-out tours and radio hits like "Mambo Craze" or "No Jive".
