Day & Taxi (Gallio / Jeger / Meier): Artists [2 CDs] (Percaso)

Label: Percaso    
Released in: Switzerland    

"For nearly a quarter century of Swiss saxophonist Christoph Gallio is the driving force of DAY & TAXI. Its oscillating easily between jazz and contemporary musical compositions are concentrated aphoristic and formally independent by design.

Undeterred by trends dares DAY & TAXI a balance between composition and improvisation. Stylistic heterogeneity, poetry and artificiality in the form of sentimentality, clichés and kitsch can not be avoided. The serene and sublime handling it shapes the unique DAY & TAXI sound that combines the individual qualities of the players and revives.

DAY & TAXI which originally Formed in 1988 as a quartet with saxophonist Urs Blöchlinger (1954-1995), bassist Lindsay L. Cooper (1940-2001), drummer Dieter Ulrich and saxophonist Christoph Gallio. Concerts in Zurich (Gessneralle, firm). The current lineup has been working since 2013 the band has released eight recordings. DAY & TAXI toured in Canada, USA, Russia, Kazakhstan, Japan, China and Europe."-Christoph Gallio website
