Tobias Preisig -||- Flowing Mood [Obliqsound, 2010]
Preisig is far from being unknown in his home country of Switzerland, and is part of a movement coming about on the European jazz scene — a new generation of young musicians coming from Zurich who have been developing a new sound in jazz, including pianist Colin Vallon and ECM recording artist Nik Bärtsch. Tobi Preisig and his outstanding band complete the group of rising stars from Zurich, with “Flowing Mood” highlighting the talents of pianist and Sony Music recording artist Stefan Rusconi, bassist Andre’ Pousatz, and drummer Michi Stultz. Preisig explains.
With “Flowing Mood“, Preisig has formed a flexible body of sound, switching between soothing silence and explosive bursts. Preisig and his violin take us on a journey of dramatic landscapes and cozy ambiances, making us sigh, sing and celebrate.
