Stephan Urwyler Generations
After two fine jazz masterpieces with the City West Quartet, Stephan Urwyler presents here with his newest trio. From the heavy thunder of an electric guitar blizzard, driven by rockpower, to the soft dream-like acoustic sounds, the trio uses very different styles.
With the renowned Walter Schmocker on bass, who toured with John Scofield and Eddie Harris before, and the young and dynamic Samuel Rohrer on drums, Stephan Urwyler creates music that is open for the ghost of woodstock as well as for tango: rough and edgy and then again full of soft harmony. Rock, tango, bebop and mambo, jazz is how you treat music! And the Stephan Urwyler Generations presents here with a big step forward toward many musical bridges. Good Stuff!
