"The Big Wig" is the masterpiece of the multitalented and vocal wonder Andreas Schaerer, solidifying his place among the most important composers and interpreters of contemporary music in his generation.


Andreas Schaerer
There are some good reasons why Andreas Schaerer from Bern is one of the most interesting vocal artists on the music scene worldwide.Which starts with the fact that he is far more than just a singer and also only fits into the jazz pigeonhole to a limited extent. Schaerer is much more of a vocal juggler who can not only sound his organ in the most diverse registers and styles (from classical song to crooner or scat singing), but can also use it to produce every conceivable sound and imitate all kinds of instruments up to and including beatbox drums and pile them on top of each other polyphonically in literally unbelievable ways. He is also a brilliant composer and improviser who can use these skills variably for the most diverse projects and create rhythmic and melodic virtuosity. And finally, he has an abundance of stage charisma and the gift of humour, which is rather rare in "serious music", and which comes into its own above all with his parade band Hildegard Lernt Fliegen.
