Four years ago, the first CD of "Buenos Aires" was released, and Heiri Känzig had written all the pieces on it. The present album unites music by all the participants. After innumerable concerts, the group formed a common identity - a sound that also forms a proper whole when the individual pieces are by different people. At the same time, "Buenos Aires" was Heiri Känzig's idea, and the music of "Buenos Aires" is a statement by an artist who sees himself as a jazz musician, but who is possessed of broad horizons and who holds sway over them. This is music that draws from many traditions and unites different cultures together, and that thanks to its mellifluousness, its beauty and poetry can speak to many people. Music that is at times so unearthly beautiful that it makes you weak at the knees!
