Hasler/Paeffgen/Berger – “Hasler/Paeffgen/Berger” – [No Business]


Airy, moody electroacoustic trio action with trumpet, drums, and vibraphone. Werner Hasler alternates between playing jazz trumpet and making odd textural sounds with his electronic processing. Gilbert Paeffgen’s drumming is super subtle and creative, perfectly supporting what the others are doing but rarely calling attention to itself. Karl Berger has played in just about every type of musical situation there is, and has developed his own distinctive style on vibes; sometimes he is content to set the scene for a piece with repeating patterns that interlock with Paeffgen’s drums, and other times his playing is more out front, taking the lead melodically or busting out a solo. Great musical interplay here. First rate playing by all.
