Chico Freeman – Heiri Känzig and Friends
Chico Freeman: tenor/soprano saxes, Samuel Blaser: trombone, Alex Wilson: piano, Heiri Känzig: bass, Norbert Pfammatter: drums
Subtle mainstream with a refreshing breeze.
The Zurich duo of tenor and soprano saxophonist Chico Freeman (originally from the USA) and bassist Heiri Känzig have been playing together for a long time. Here they expand their compressed density to a quintet and stay true to their essence: with beautiful timbre and a sense for dynamics and aesthetics of melody, they make the musical core vibrate, masterfully supported by their fellow musicians.
