About the album

The studying of the line-up of the group “Peter’s Playstation” allows a hint to the type of music cultivated by its seven members: light and airy, pursuing a very personally developed interesting style with enough room for the participants to deliver intelligent solos. Yet, the proceedings keep a justifiable distance from jazz by often using ostinato phrases to build certain bridges into the successful compositions. Even though a bit away from jazz, the high level of musicianship is upheld and under-lined by excellent solo contributions to bring the music closer to jazz just the same. To be considered are the two outstanding instrumental soloists who lend a very special flavor to the music. First Michael Zismann, treating an instrument considered to be reserved for tango - the bandoneon - extracting sounds seldom heard and covering stylistically grounds for this instrument. Simon Wyrsch appears to be another youngster on the go with his bass clarinet. The rest of the group, especially leader/-composer/arranger and drummer Preibisch is heard at their very best, a real treat!
Bereits das Durchlesen der Besetzung dieser Gruppe erlaubt den Hinweis auf das Genre welches hier gepflegt wird: leicht und luftig, den eigenen, interessanten Weg einschlagend und den Mitwirkenden genug Raum für jeweilige Soli zu lasen. Wobei sehr viel Wert auf Ostinato-Phrasen gelegt wird, welche den gelungenen Kompositionen gewisse Brücken bauen. Diese Tatsachen entfernen das Geschehen etwas vom Jazz, ohne das Niveau negativ zu beeinflussen. Und doch, das Niveau wird dank hervorragender Soloeinsätze der Mitwirkenden immer wieder nahe dem Jazz platziert. Es gibt einige aussergewöhnliche Instrumentalsolisten, welche diese Produktion erheblich positiv beeinflussen. In erster Linie Bandeonist Michael Zismann, der dieses eher nicht oft angewendete Instrument in eine Richtung stilisiert hat, die man selten antrifft. Bassklarinettist Wyrsch ist dabei, sich hörbar zu einem echten Könner zu entwickeln. Müller, Hunziker, Schenkel und der Komponist/Leader/Schlagzeuger Preibisch liefern die anderen Eckwerte dazu diese Produktion aus dem Rahmen fallen zu lassen und liefern jeder für sich eine Leistung ab, die die Gruppe aus dem Gros der heute mit dem Entweder-Oder Stil zwischen bestehenden Arten hin und her lavierend, zu unterscheiden. Ein neuartiger Genuss!
