Album Description

The quintet Pilgrim, founded by Zurich based tenor saxo- phonist Christoph Irniger, has become over the years one of the most exciting ensembles in young European Jazz. After the highly praised group’s latest studio recording 'Italian Cir- cus Story', Pilgrim - driven by enthusiasm and inventiveness - presents the vibrant live album 'Big Wheel'. Recorded du- ring acclaimed concerts in Ratzeburg, Berlin and Altenburg, Pilgrim plays full of verve, with plenty of room for spontaneity and improvisation and demonstrates impressively their pul- sating music. Henning Bolte writes in the liner notes: „Pilgrim creates a deep field of sound with alternating foreground and background, full of echo effects, fading surfaces, frizzing lines, and swirls like falling leaves. This tonal richness is no self-sufficient affair, but time after time it emerges from un- usual, surprising turning points and dynamic openings.“

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
