Big Wheel Live
By Christoph Irniger /Pilgrim
It's acid around pH 6.5. Men making tennis sounds and dribbling piano. Somewhat directionless, like a wheel with spokes on the outside.
The quintet Pilgrim, founded by Zurich based tenor saxophonist Christoph Irniger, has become over the years one of the most exciting ensembles in young European Jazz. After the highly praised group’s latest studio recording 'Italian Circus Story', Pilgrim - driven by enthusiasm and inventiveness - presents the vibrant live album 'Big Wheel'. Pilgrim plays full of verve, with plenty of room for spontaneity and improvisation and demonstrates impressively their pulsating music. 'Acid' was composed by Christoph Irniger (Suisa) performed by Christoph Irniger Pilgrim, Christoph Irniger: tenor sax; Stefan Aeby: piano; Dave Gisler: guitar; Raffaele Bossard: bass; Michi Stulz, drums.
