descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Schwebend ("floating"), recorded in Germany in March 2021, is one of the latest releases from Creative Sources, a part of getting things rolling again with performances & conceptions here from 2021/2022. (As many labels continue to scour 2019 for performances worth releasing....) And I was attracted by the lineup featuring Swiss bassist Daniel Studer, in a quartet paired with Stefan Scheib, also on double bass (paralleling, perhaps, the Studer-Frey duo, as mentioned here originally in May 2019... - & Schwebend was recorded by Scheib as well), plus Johannes Schmitz (guitar) & Daniel Weber (drums) to form SteDaJoDa.

The six tracks, recorded over two consecutive dates, involve various bent tones & slides, a wide range of string "deconstruction" & starkness characteristic of the Swiss scene, but also an occasional flash of electric rock guitar, seeming at first to come out of nowhere.... I wasn't familiar with the other three musicians (although the Weber name appears with some frequency...), but the effect here is of exotic & twisting shapes, a bit of noise as ingredient perhaps, but more inclined to pointillism, even ringing metal (but also wood or membranes...), all somewhat distended (pace an occasionally concrete idiom appearing) - or, as some might say, presented as a little night music.... I could suggest, then, that feelings of anticipation are "answered" by (rock) guitar, only to float away... perhaps into a "distant radio" vibe, fluttering, then spinning, groaning, bending again....

Schwebend ends up feeling both figural & virtuosic: Actually, its opening sequence is already strikingly so, while later passages elaborate new timbral combos & figures as well. And this isn't the first quartet around Studer & crunchy strings to release an album on Creative Sources (with the sometimes quiet & breezy album by Anemochore having been reviewed here in July 2019...), again with considerable dynamic range & sometimes intricate extended counterpoint. To that foundation, SteDaJoDa adds an ominous quality, a sliding & crackling unease, a spicing of blues it comes to seem, always creeping up on us.... And even some shredding to close."-Todd McComb's Jazz Thoughts
