About the Album

Christoph Irniger and a big band? Actually, one associates the saxophonist more with more manageable formats. As seen in bands such as Pilgrim or the Christoph Irniger Trio, he prefers smaller formations, from trio to quintet, in which he brings out every voice, intention and interaction in full balance. All the more surprising now is the compactness and density he achieves in his orchestral debut with the Swiss Jazz Orchestra. The pleasure in playing inevitably translates into a pleasure in listening. One feels the power of a colossus whose cauldron is heated to bursting point with great melodies. The pressure of the unconditional desire to tell stories keeps the steam engine running. Still, you can't listen as fast as the ideas flow.
