Artist Biographies:

"Luca Sisera (b. 27/08/1975, Chur)

For a good 15 years, Luca Sisera has been a sought-after bassist in the Swiss jazz and improvisation scene. Musically, he likes to operate in the charged environment between composition and improvisation. He is frequently seen on stage at various festivals and jazz clubs across Europe in well over 100 concerts each year, whereby some tours and concerts have already taken him to Egypt, China and America. To date, he has been involved in over 30 audio releases, often produced in cooperation with Swiss Radio SRF 2. Most recently, Luca Sisera has also started working as a composer for his own quintet "ROOFER". As interdisciplinary projects have always interested him, Luca Sisera has also worked with authors, cabaret artists, dancers and visual artists, among others, as well as on theatre and film productions.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Kerouac plays with rhythms and sounds and spaces. A door within a door opens up into a new space of experience. And so it goes on - much to the surprise of the listener and to the musicians themselves. Without a doubt, the band Kerouac has already reached a high plateau but is still 'on the road'", writes Bert Noglik in his liner notes.

"Groove is the key concept for this album - a kind of physical kinetic energy, which gets minds and body going. The rhythmical element combines with a kind of magic, at times with the ecstatic, in conjuring up a ritual ...

Michael Jaeger's playing takes its origins from the spirit of black ballads. It is present day stories which are being told here and which then fan out. If there is an echo of John Coltrane here, a hint of Evan Parker there and finally also a tiny tribute to Jimmy Giuffre, it is neither about borrowing idioms nor about playing quotes, it is about playing with a wealth of experience."-Intakt
