The Only Way To Go Is Love
"My Dear Little Orchestra" is the Name of the 10-head-jazzformation of the reknown pianoplayer Regula Haener from Bern, Switzerland. The group exists since 1998 and has its debut release with this exiting cd. As first femaile visitor of the Swiss Jazz School in Bern on piano and also classical trained, Regula Haener did hire excellent professional musicians from the german and swiss jazz scene to realise her project. A lot of musical experience with artists like Jimmy Woody, George Robert, Gunther Schuller, Art Farmer, Bob Mintzer and many of the highly rated Swiss jazz scene are gathered in this Orchestra.
Written during the last four years, the mostly selfpenned programm "The Only Way To Go Is Love" is a collection of orchestral stories, marked by a strict search of new sound worlds and experiences. The musical stories also reflect an inner vision of a world beyond the visible. Stories full of sentiments for sound spaces of various places, filled with a variety of horn arrangements, full of beautiful melodies with unusual sequences of sounds, sometimes very lyrical, sometimes spheric, sometimes intensiv, compact and groovy.
