About the album

’Autobahn’, ’Die Roboter’ and ’Computerwelt’ are some of the classical pieces of the electro- pop group Kraftwerk, which the MenschMaschine project master-minded by the Swiss pianist Oli Kuster renders in jazz cover versions. An hommage to the cult band of the 70s, the project breathes new life into their legendary Kling Klang Studio recodings. The four inspired Swiss musicians from Bern cover the songs with light reharmonizations, powerful grooves and liberal improvisations. Tapping into synth sound resources, the quartet uses natural gut, animal hide, bamboo leaves and brass for rendering an emphatic, creative music that pays tribute to the pioneering work of the German group, while testifying to the courage and self-conception of modern jazz musicians.
