about

Intakt CD 098

Irène Schweizer and Omri Ziegele are a pair as perfectly opposite as Monk and Johnny Griffin: she is a mercurial, superior architect at the piano, with a presence one can only admire; he is an existential virtuoso with an independent magination of a kind that is becoming ever harder to find. Here they are together on a CD with their «little favorites,» unpretentiously presented as if they were sitting or standing in front of the home crowd at Café Casablanca in Zürich; everyday music, which easily includes Monk and Don Cherry, the blues and the Great American Songbook, lovingly worked out and, in its fragmentary perfection, generating unexpected associations.
