Urs Bollhalder Trio
The new trio recording of the exceptional Swiss jazz pianist Urs Bollhalder will be released in April 2015 on the Swiss record label Musiques Suisses. On this new recording he is collaborating with the renowned double bass player Heiri Känzig and the talented young drummer Kevin Chesham.
All the pieces on this CD were composed by Urs Bollhalder and provide the basis for a unique mixture of exciting contemporary interplay, fiery grooves and sensuously lyrical passages. The individual pieces tell musical stories all around the topic of the sea. The way in which composition and improvisation flow into one another is wholly organic on this recording, and is one of the strengths of the trance-like communication between these three musicians.
