About the album
– One could interpret this title as a motto from the career of Peter Eigenmann – which is now nearly four decades long. It requires perseverance, over such a pronounced timespan, to continually development one’s craft - especially in the winds of our fast-moving times. A guitarist with passion and careful sensibility presents us with a new Trio that includes Patrick Sommer on bass and Dominic Egli on drums.
This collaboration began with the founding of the Peter Eigenmann/Ken Cervenka Nonet and was, as Eigenmann describes it, “A stroke of luck”. As the well-known story goes... “You can be really happy if you find a good bass player and a good drummer – but even more so, when they make a good rhythm section. And, without a doubt, these two are great together”. In addition, they also get enough room to show off their skills as outstanding soloists.
While playing the many favourites from Peter Eigenmann’s repertoire, a silent consensus emerged within the group – the desire to interpret each tune with the utmost freedom and expression. The spectrum of music is varied, ranging from open improvisation to through-composed material. The common denominator of this project: An open ear for one another and the blending of each individual’s personal sound. Together, the three achieve a beautifully balanced musical statement.
