In April 2018 Berlin-based Max Raabe & Palast Orchester will be crossing the Atlantic with their critically acclaimed show “Let’s Do It”. It may seem fresh that a German band tours the home territory of the American Songbook with a program stacked with standards like “Stormy Weather”, “Over My Shoulder” or “Who´s Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf”, but Max Raabe & Palast Orchester have their own charming way of interpreting the original arrangements. They take a classical approach, put thought into every musical phrase and then let the music flow. A wonderful contrast to these melodies well known to American and Canadian audiences are the German counterparts written in the late 20s. Hilarious songs like “When I need love, I go to Pauline”, romances like “Women are so beautiful when they love” and classics like Kurt Weill´s “Bilbao Song” are cleverly woven into a highly entertaining evening that builds bridges over time and space.
Presented by Count Basie Theatre
