About the album

Imagine a melting pot. The ingredients are: two clarinets, guitars, and percussion. The herbs derive from oriental music, Italian folk, and contemporary Jazz- with some additional flavours from Klezmer, Swing, and Classical. This sounds pretty basic. And what comes out of this melting pot basically is vibrant music. No more, no less.

When Italian clarinet virtuoso Gianluigi Trovesi met the Germany-based ensemble FisFüz for the first time some three years ago, he immediately knew that he found a bunch of like-minded musicians. Better say: a perfect complementary fit. Trovesi is rooted in Jazz, with a strong background in Folk and Classical, whereas ensemble FisFüz (the name FisFüz was chosen, because its sound represents the ensemble's musical style. There is no actual meaning or etymological background) is rooted firmly in what is called World Music, enhanced with Classical and Jazz.

It lasted until the beginning of 2012, after several successful shows and many discussions about what the ideal musical direction should be, that the loose association became a firm project and started recording their first album.
