Lively bubbler of a large band. Has a life of its own and it sounds accomplished beyond its years.

About the Album

This track is one of the very first compositions I did, just after turning 18. At that moment neither my band or I were able to play it properly, so we ended up abandoning it. A few years later I found myself preparing the production the Frisson Sextet album, and in need of a couple extra tunes to complete the record. I decided to do some research in my sketches, and I found this amazing tune I almost didn't remember about. I got so excited about it that in a couple days I finished the arrangement! Later it turned out to be one of the tunes that I'm most proud of on the record. Dedicated to my flatmates at that time, whom later become my best friends. About the album: Frisson Sextet, the second album from the saxophonist/composer Vernau Mier, is an introspective work summarizing his personal experiences during the last months in Barcelona before starting a new chapter in Switzerland. It is through his compositions that he reflects on the experience of being detached from a place and a life and migrating to an unknown place. Looking forward to new opportunities with the freedom to explore new frontiers while dealing with the frisson caused by the beginning of a new life.
