Wickihalder, Juerg

Wickihalder, Juerg: Furioso (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Starting in 1995 the Swiss saxophonist and composer Juerg Wickihalder worked in several projects in the USA together with bassist Mark Zubek, drummer Kevin Zubek and clarinetist/saxophonist Achille Succi (for instance in the Big Band "Interplay Collective" or the internationally successful Jazz-Funk-Band "B. Connection").

The four musicians met in 2007 again, for the first time after almost ten years. During this "10-years-break", every musician went his own way, everyone developed his musical language, delight in playing and energy joins now experience and maturity.

Musically the band somehow reminds of the early Ornette Coleman Quartet or the Steve Lacy Quartet with Don Cherry: it is a playful music with a strong groove, over which - since there is no harmony instrument!- the soloists improvise with a lot of freedom, but always focusing on the compositional material."-Juerg Wickihalder website
