sample the album:
"The eight compositions on this CD can be understood as a movie, as the soundtrack of important encounters and experiences in the life of the 34-year-old soprano saxophonist. The results are special songs, simple, beautiful things, very melodic. When he left the studio, he was aware that the pieces generally had to do with a particular musician who had at some point been important to him. "Ridge Dancers" for Ornette Coleman - nothing harmolodic, but an image that fits. "Autumn Child" has to do with Miles Davis, "The Coach" with Duke Ellington, "The Sun" with Charlie Parker, "Apology" with Stan Getz, "The Last Breath" with Steve Lacy and "Caring" with Coltrane. The point is not the compositional details, but rather the associations: something felt, intuitive, even intimate.
Juerg Wickihalder is one of the most interesting young musican of the Zuerich jazz scene. He plays with Irène Schweizer. He is a member of the Orchestra Omri Ziegele Billiger Bauer and he leads his own Quartet."-Intakt
