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.“
