an encounter of two cultures with my music as a linking bridge in between. eight contemporary jazz compositions recorded in são paulo in brasil with my quartet of brasilien musicians. eight lead sheets and eight arrangements. the same eight tunes i gonna record in switzerland for a second time with my quartet formatted with swiss musicians. the sounding of the two groups present a musically interesting difference for the listener. the different ways of playing with rhythm, melodies and dynamics between brasilia and swiss musicians let you flow thru nearby and at same time far away worlds of sounds an their concepts. what’s familiar can get strange and foreign feels suddenly close. shows will be planyed in mixed groups. that will spread my personal musically cultural exchange to the participating musicians as well.
