About the Album

Mt. Tongariro is the new Album of Christoph Irniger's new group "Pilgrim" (feat. Vera Kappeler, p / Christian Weber, b / Michi Stulz, dr). It includes 6 tracks telling the story of a journey to Mount Tongariro, which is an existing vulcano in New Zealand. The record mixes composition and (collective-)improvisation to a sometimes self-reflecting, sometimes energetic unity.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
