A meeting of two jazz giants: In 2015, Joey Baron, one of the most sought after drummers on the New York scene met the First Lady of European jazz, Swiss pianist Irène Schweizer, in concert in Zürich. During his long career Baron has played with bands such as Naked City and Masada and worked with musicians Dizzy Gillespie, Chet Baker, Joe Lovano, Bill Frisell and Marc Ribot.

Schweizer had already performed and recorded with the best drummers on the planet: Pierre Favre, Han Bennink, Louis Moholo-Moholo, Günter “Baby“ Sommer, Andrew Cyrille and Hamid Drake.

The performance of the two was one of the highlights of the Unerhört-Festival in Zürich, 2015. Their encounter had everything you could hope for: energy, drive and mesmerizing exchanges paired with the magical tunes Schweizer is famous for. “This beautiful recording documents a marvellous evening in Zürich,“ John Corbett writes in the liner notes.
