Christophe Schweizer / 5SIX7

PORTAS

Description

Established since the middle of the Nineties in New York, Christophe Schweizer is a visionary composer in the field of today's progressive Jazz. Although well acquainted with the Jazz tradition, Schweizer is not bent on the past, but pursues the search for new composition and improvisation alloys. In doing so, he is asking the most from everyone including himself. Schweizer writes highly complex scores, which don't have much in common anymore with the "lead sheets" otherwise used in Jazz, and which require performers to be prepared to explore (and occasionally break) technical and mental limits.
