About the Album

A red old Helicopter hovering over ground. It takes a lot of force and power to lift that much bulky machinery and it leaves much space for obvious analogies. And yes, Lonely Machines bares a blunt message - well thought out and wisely approached. It’s the line of argument where todays improvised music can go, leaving all clichés and expectations aside, enhancing the Freedom of music. Its the delighting touch of Joscha Schraff’s young music writing, the extraordinary sense of musicianship, and gutsy choices, that makes these songs sound fascinating and fresh. A modern music story. Joscha Schraff got together some of his best friends to form a band for his Bachelor Concert. A few weeks later the new Joscha Schraff Quartet became the Best bachelor Project 2013 of the university of the arts Zurich. Awarded with a groundbreaking tour in Switzerland’s most well known Jazz Clubs, receiving nation wide exposure and praise. 2015 the Swiss National Broadcast SRF 2 steps in, granting Joscha Schraff and his band a two day recording session in Europe’s well known Hardstudios. Preparing the release Joscha Schraff introduced «Lonely Machines» live, September this year at the Kammgarn, a venue that mostly hosts international Pop Stars, proving his point that Swiss Jazz is a force to reckon with.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
