BEYOND  (Wickihalder - Guy - Niggli)

Jürg Wickihalder: ts, ss
Barry Guy:  bass
Lucas Niggli:  drums

This trio unites three leading European musicians from different generations, each with his own musical biography: three sound artists, three virtuoso instrumentalists, three breathtaking improvisers.
Wickihalder takes the "lead" in the trio. He wrote the compositions. Wickihalder is how a British journalist wrote, a "Master of Melody". His compositions - colored, sounded drunk and edgy at the same time - are starting points for musical dialogues, for adventurous trips into the sparkling music of improvisation of today's contemporary jazz.

Lucas Niggli is the rhythm-artist of the younger generation of European jazz. His drumming is impulsive and sensitive, sounded oriented and rocking.
