Dave Gisler: Rabbits on the Run

Read "Rabbits on the Run" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Young Swiss guitarist Dave Gisler (Christoph Irniger's Pilgrim, Weird Beard) is gradually climbing the guitar hero stairwell, reaffirmed by this captivating trio date with his prominent fellow countrymen providing the oomph and pizazz throughout.

Markus Lauterburg: Mumur

Read "Mumur" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Curioso organico: batteria, basso elettrico, chitarra, violoncello e sax soprano. Verrebbe da pensare ad atmosfere cameristiche, ad una certa qual levità.

Soprattutto nella prima parte dell'album, in cui solo la prima delle tre Bliss (tracce collettive, improvvisate) marca una pausa da atmosfere nervose e ...
