Sharp / Gibbs / Niggli
Crossing The Waters

Sharp / Gibbs / Niggli: Crossing The Waters (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    

"During the two-weeks festival by Intakt Records at John Zorn's club The Stone in New York's East Village, Sharp-Gibbs-Niggli performed for the first time. Three musicians with diverse backgrounds and biographies, but a very clear common goal: instant composing with hypertension, where Elliott Sharp's blues, Melvin Gibb's funk and Lucas Niggli's drive found perfectly together to celebrate an unique music with no borders, lots of colours and massiv energy. On the very day after the three musicians went for to a brooklyn-studio and recorded the CD "Crossing the Waters". Excursions in the adventurous tonal landscapes based on blues, rock and free music."-Intakt
