Gallio, Christoph/Voerkel, Urs/Frey, Peter K – Tiegel (Atavistic)

Largely unknown in the U.S. Gallio studied under Steve Lacy in Paris and performed with Frith and Minton in the 90s. Soprano sax, piano-drums and double bass-trombone in a 1981 Zurich performance.?? From flickering phrases to flowering long-wave extensions, this trio lets you know they’re comfortable with space.?? Polyphonic wind and ripples of piano wrap around earthy basslines to concoct a potent european experimentalism.?? Sensible and stylish while touching on the outer edges of improv jazz.?? This is the euro-stuff at its finest, much like the Dieter Scherf and Mount Everest Trio releases.??

3W:?? Fine Swiss Craftmanship
