Polisation I 14:25
Nirvana 09:01


Intakt CD 174

Lucas Nggli has rebuild BIG ZOOM. Two experienced improvisators of great reputation, the English bassist Barry Guy and the American flutist Anne La Berge joined the regulars Philipp Schaufelberger (electric guitar) and Nils Wogram (trombone). “I wanted to have distinct characters”, Niggli justified his choice. After extremely working on sheet music with the Arte Quartett Niggli pushed back to freedom, embracing a concept that gives more room to improvisation and tonality of the E-music avant-garde without disposing of the eloquence and refinement of the virtuoso jazz playing Schaufelberger and Wogram are so experienced in.

With his highly versed crew Niggli took off for another expedition that opens the most surprising outlooks. His thirst for adventure remains unquenched.
