“When we decided to produce a recording I wanted to have French-Vietnamese guitar virtuoso Nguyên Lê and the doyen of the Austrian jazz scene, alto saxophonist and flutist Wolfgang Puschnig to record with us. Both of them have a very distinct sound and they fit perfectly to our quintet. The music comes in equal parts from my long-time JBBG – JAZZ BIGBAND GRAZ partner Horst-Michael Schaffer, keyboardist Uli Rennert and myself.

After two days we were done and very satisfied – and had material for at least two productions! I believe that we developed something very special with this band and we do have a lot of fun – of and on the stage as well as the studio.”
