About the album

Voyage in time (a suite in nine movements) is conceived in the likeness of the suites of dances typical of the Baroque era. Some titles (Minuet, Courante, Pavane) may surprise the listener who associates our names with Jazz music. It is certainly true that our three previous albums were all Jazz albums. However, this fourth encounter - our second album for Challenge Records, after Common View (2020) - is a completely different recording, both in terms of line-up and material. The movements, composed by Jasper and arranged together during our recording session, reflect our shared love of classical music and combine classical forms with a very open improvisational approach. The result is a sort of journey back and forth between the musical languages of our time and of times past. A very special Voyage In Time, in fact, in which you are all invited to take part.

Voyage in time (eine Suite in neun Sätzen) ist in Anlehnung an die für die Barockzeit typischen Tanzsuiten konzipiert. Einige Titel (Menuett, Courante, Pavane) mögen den Hörer überraschen, der unsere Namen mit Jazzmusik assoziiert. Es ist sicher richtig, dass unsere drei vorherigen Alben alle Jazz-Alben waren. Diese vierte Begegnung - unser zweites Album für Challenge Records nach Common View (2020) - ist jedoch eine völlig andere Aufnahme, sowohl was die Besetzung als auch das Material betrifft. Die von Jasper komponierten und während unserer Aufnahmesession gemeinsam arrangierten Sätze spiegeln unsere gemeinsame Liebe zur klassischen Musik wider und verbinden klassische Formen mit einem sehr offenen improvisatorischen Ansatz. Das Ergebnis ist eine Art Reise hin und her zwischen den musikalischen Sprachen unserer Zeit und der Vergangenheit.
Eine ganz besondere Zeitreise also, an der Sie alle teilnehmen können.
