about

Intakt CD 253

After the acclaimed album ‘Gowanus Canal’ in 2012, ‘Octopus’ is Christoph Irniger’s second release with his trio of Raffaele Bossard (double bass) and Ziv Ravitz (drums). The album is a studio recording from last autumn and shows the ensemble in fantastic shape.

Irniger is a master of orchestration and rejects the hierarchy of soloist-plus-rhythm. Instead of using the compositions as springboards for solos, he finds interesting ways for the improvisations to underline the compositional characteristics.

‘Melody, arrangement, improvisation: the trio fuse them all into one tightly integrated and alluring package,’ writes
American jazz critic Kevin Whitehead, and emphasizing the strength of Irninger’s melodies he asks: ‘Why should pop bands (and their listeners) have all the fun?’
