The sky of mahogany. Time does not exist. Image floods of sounds. Unadorned. These musicians are excellent players, yes, but they are above all exceptional listeners with monitoring reflexes. Elastic provocateurs who manage to keep the tension with intensity and refinement. To arouse everyone's curiosity about everything.
Flying high despite being grounded, ECM artist Björn Meyer succeeds. The transforming power of music is always immediately perceptible with him. Kaspar Rast is one of the most sought-after drummers in Switzerland, cherished for his distinctive sound, his dynamic playing and his ability to make even the most complex grooves sound "danceable". Marcel and Thomas have been playing together since Thomas was ten minutes old. Thomas' years of travel took him to Berklee College of Music in Boston/USA and to the parlor of Fred Hersch, who showed him even more of the magic of music. Marcel Lüscher studied at the Musikhochschule Basel. His musical collaborations bring together characters as diverse as the French chansonnier Thibaut Derien, Louis Sclavis and Stephan Eicher.
