MIDNIGHT - $20
Andi Schnellmann : basse électrique
Manuel Troller : guitare électrique
David Meier : batterie
The compositions of SCHNELLERTOLLERMEIER are like Swiss watches: motifs fit one another like cogs in cogs, they turn, things progress, and
everything seems to happen exactly when it should. Mechanical? Perhaps, but their finely honed machinery will rivet you to your seat from start to finish.
This trio has been at it for a decade or so, and its members, relatively young, are experienced players nevertheless. MANUEL TROLLER enjoys a fine solo career and improvises with Gerry Hemingway, among others. ANDI SCHNELLMANN also plays in pop groups and the minimal jazz quintet Akku. DAVID MEIER can be found everywhere on the Swiss jazz scene, either with his own outfit Hunter-Gatherer or with Christoph Gallio’s Day & Taxi.
After two albums that undeservedly flew under the radar, SCHNELLERTOLLERMEIER convinced US label Cuneiform Records to release their third opus, X, in 2015. Since then, their profile has risen considerably, and so has the number of concerts they play – and they do reveal their full potential on stage. The release of Rights last fall cemented our judgment: this trio has everything necessary to make you go wow!
