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).
