Tape Release "Hidden Tracks"

Today the pretty little tape "Hidden Tracks" is being released. It was recorded during the first lockdown. We have produced 60 copies, including download codes. We - that is Dimitri Howald, Valentin v. Fischer and I. On the tape are six of our favourite songs. No big hits, which makes them even more exciting...

Irma Krebs: Plattentaufe GRÜESSECH GRÜESSECH

Hollahollaholla, Irma again... But this time it is really important: She babtizes her newborn baby GRÜESSECH GRÜESSECH at an unfamiliar place: the Hostel 77 in Bern. 50 people can come, that is why the concert will take place twice:

May 12, 8:00 pm

May 13, 8:00 pm

Important: Let us know if you want to come:

Bring a mask and come early: 7:30 pm, and all will be well...

Howald-Schmid-V.Fischer: Life At The Zoo

Only a few days after the lockdown announcement Wolfgang Zwiauer and Tom Gsteiger created a new plaform, adapted to the situation: Life At The Zoo. Here scrimmages everything that creeps and crawls in the Swiss jazz scene and that is looking for exterior roaming. Almost on a daily basis sessions are recorded at The Zoo Studio, Bern and uploaded on soundcloud only a short while later. On 9 May Dimitri Howald, Valentin v.Fischer and I had the chance to use such a session to play a series of pop covers: songs we hold dear which are not on radio every day (and probably never were). Click here or on the picture to listen...
