Go East’ is a Big Band jazz funk tune written by Stefan Redtenbacher. Inspired by Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ and Jaco Pastorius’ ‘Word of Mouth’ Big Band – it has several ‘mini’ movements and features the double bass (Bruce Gertz) and electric bass (Stefan Redtenbacher) – both in accompanying and solo roles.
