MATHIAS RÜEGG AND VIENNA ART ORCHESTRA

In 2010, the Vienna Art Orchestra celebrates its 33rd birthday. Throughout its life, it has established itself as one of the world's most individual and distinctive bands, with a stylistic range that stretches from early jazz to the avant garde, or as its director Mathias Rüegg puts it "from rag time to no time". Rüegg joins Alyn Shipton to pick the highlights of a prolific recording career.
