FRIDAY MUSIC: Club des Belugas, by JD

Their Wiki page is in German https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Club_des_Belugas and they are described as Nu-Jazz with the 'core' of the band being Maxim Illion and Kitty the Bill who are supported by various jazz singers and instrumentalists assembled in big band or sextet or quartet as required plus guest artists. I'm not sure how many there are but you can count them here if you wish -

The Wiki page lists 19 musicians in the studio band, 11 in the big band performing live and four in the quartet (obviously) although the quartet does not include the two founder members.

It all sounds very haphazard but it seems to work and below is a selection of their output from eleven albums and from their live shows.
