This song was recorded in September 2013 at "Jazz im Seefeld", Zürich/Switzerland
The pieces on "Gowanus Canal", compositions by the bandleader and saxophonist Christoph Irniger and the bassist Raffaele Bossard, celebrate melody without once degenerating into the trivial. They are tone poems which demonstrate that accessible melodies and complex tonal worlds need not be mutually exclusive and can in fact make sense of each other. It's fine to sing along to this music, to dance even, while inadvertently realising how sophisticated and complex it actually is.
This is achieved because the rhythm section push the sonorous potential of their instruments way further than most classical trios. Using tones of every shade and colour, the drums and bass succeed in expanding the three-piece ensemble into a veritable orchestra.
The Christoph Irniger Trio was formed in New York and appears now with its first record on Intakt Records in summer 2013. All three musicians play in various other groups in Europe and the USA and in their short careers they have already had the opportunity to play and learn with jazz heavy-weights such as Joe Lovano, Ron Carter and Kurt Rosenwinkel.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
