"When a piano trio plays "Great American Songs", it is usually like a more orless amusing party with old friends. WWU, however, are different. Their interpretations of standards are actually downright metamorphoses. The compositions by Cole porter, George Gerswhin and Victor Young have been subjected to an extensive, thourh never malicious transformation process. Nevertheless, the basic substance of the pieces - their DNA, so to speak, or "intense flavour", as Ulrich puts it - will always remain intact. With reference to the French philospher Deleuze, Wiesendanger explains that the point is to create a foreign language out of a mother-tongue. Uncovering the unfamilar in the well-knows, WWU do not content themselves with exploring the songs' beautiful surfce, but dlve into the psyche, so to speak, and coax secrets out of them nobody even knew about before."-Tom Gsteiger, back cover
