Berne Concert

Trio 3 + Irene Schweizer: Berne Concert (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    

"What we get to hear on this album is a transatlantic encounter that casts an up-to-date yet historical light on many relations and cross-links. The African-American jazz community of New York has formed the drummer Andrew Cyrille, the saxophonist Oliver Lake and the bassist Reggie Workman; and they have rewarded this environment with important stimuli - e.g. as peers of artists like John Coltrane, Cecil Taylor, Archie Shepp. As a pioneer of the European jazz piano, Irene Schweizer is also part of this history. She has already worked with Andrew Cyrille twenty years ago. It is wonderful to hear how relaxed they improvise on this CD. Virtuosity is barely an issue - it is unpretentiously presumed. So this is really about the balance of sound, energy and rhythm, about solos, duos and trios - and quartet formations that allow individual qualities to unfold. It is fascinating how the well-rehearsed trio opens up to the guest to allow the voices to unfurl and to connect. Irene Schweizer's agility to integrate into the trio is very persuasive, and she delivers enriching ornaments and insertions in the composed pieces in a way one rarely hears."-Intakt
