Christoph Irniger Pilgrim: Crosswinds

Read "Crosswinds" reviewed by Don Phipps

With Crosswinds, Christoph Irniger's quartet Pilgrim offers a scintillating trip into a musical subconscious --a dream state where one opens doors only to find more doors --a spiral staircase where the top is always just beyond reach. For the most part, the album consists of tunes that are both sparse yet engaging. And it is this ...

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.

Dave Gisler's Shizzle: Dream

Read "Dream" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Le piccole etichette svizzere continuano a stupirci con proposte coraggiose e mature al tempo stesso, disancorate dal solito stile hard bop. Il chitarrista Dave Gisler affronta queste otto composizioni, in parte scritte collettivamente, in parte scritte da lui stesso, con il giusto grado di curiosità e con la completa padronanza del linguaggio. Un idioma moderno e ...

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. E invece la musica di Mumur è spesso carica di elettricità, di vera e propria tensione. Soprattutto nella prima parte dell'album, in cui solo la prima delle tre Bliss (tracce collettive, improvvisate) marca una pausa ...
