About the album

Once upon a time in February 2006: a Swiss band, a trio, appeared for the first time with their “Fundamental Music" to represent their country in the series” Jazz thing Next Generation". Since that time, another CD "Karpfen in Wilhemsdorf" has been released at Double Moon Records as well as one at the Swiss Migros-foundation. Bernhard Bamert also created a short cartoon, which was shown in Swiss movie theaters and received several awards. The new CD has a title, which is not even understood by everybody in Switzerland. "Brissago" is the name of a small Swiss village at Lake Maggiore, shortly before the border to Italy, with barely 2000 inhabitants. But Brissago is also the name of a cigar that comes from this village, from a small cigar factory that was founded in the 19th century. And its shape defies any sense of a pattern: thin, slightly spiral-shaped, much too long for its thickness with grass stem channel – and no cigar is like another. This also describes the characteristics of the trio's music: unique, unusual and slightly crazy. The three Swiss Alps anarchists with their great joy in dismantling, shattering and putting back together anew take everything from rock to folk music, anything that they find along the way, and mix it all in their band mortar. They compose new pieces from that, which – although they remind us of their initial elements – are a lot more fun. These miniatures rarely run for more than two minutes, sometimes even less than one minute. Music essence, to put it another way. Above all, Alpine tradition flashes through time and again, an enjoyable encounter with their own culture, which then flows into songs such as "Grünes Gras" (Green Grass), "Nutztierdruck" ("Cowshit Blues") and "Lachnummer" ("Big Flop").
Die neue CD von Tré trägt einen Titel, der selbst in der Schweiz nicht für jeden einen Wiedererkennungswert bietet. "Brissago" ist der Name einer kleinen Schweizer Gemeinde am Lago Maggiore, kurz vor der Grenze nach Italien, mit kaum 2000 Einwohnern. Aber Brissago ist gleichzeitig der Name einer Zigarre, die aus ebendiesem Ort stammt, aus einer kleinen Zigarrenfabrik, die im 19. Jahrhundert gegründet wurde. Und die sich in ihrer Form jedem Muster verweigert: dünn, leicht spiralförmig verdreht, viel zu lang für ihre Dicke, mit Grashalm-Kanal - und keine Zigarre gleicht der anderen. Damit ist auch schon ein Merkmal der Musik des Trios beschrieben: einmalig, ungewohnt und leicht verdreht. Die drei Schweizer Alpen-Anarchisten mit ihrer großen Lust am Zerlegen, Zertrümmern und wieder neu zusammen setzen greifen sich von Rock bis Volksmusik, was ihnen über den Weg läuft und zerstoßen alles in ihrem Bandmörser. Und bereiten daraus wieder neue Stücke zu, die zwar noch an das Ausgangsprodukt erinnern - aber deutlich mehr Spaß machen. Extra: Kurzfilm von Bernhard Bamert!

Bernhard Bamert

Bernhard Bamert (born in 1970) is a gifted trombonist and qualified graphic designer. He is responsible both for the striking look of the CD as well as for the short film (together with Lukas Egger). He is a CD-plus on 'Brissago' – a great selected extra! Thomas Lüthi, born in 1973, studied at the Bern Jazz School under Andy Scherrer and is one of the saxophonists most in demand in the meantime, and not just in Switzerland. His special, warm sound fits perfectly between trombone and drum set. Christian Niederer (1971) is the 'pacemaker' of the trio and knows all the tricks. Not only how you generate a groove, but also how you can warp a groove, so that you...

Not only how you generate a groove, but also how you can warp a groove, so that you only think that you can detect a rhythm. The fact that he has played in very different bands from funk to soul and jazz is more than obvious.
