CHRISTOPH IRNIGER Octopus

snobb
Swiss tenor Christoph Irniger plays unconventional avant-garde jazz. Leading the trio with compatriot double bassist Raffaele Bossard and American drummer Ziv Ravitz, Christoph plays dry short tuneful snippets constructing well controlled almost minimalist compositions.

Differently from dominating noisy and very free sax players on today's avant-garde jazz scene, Irniger's music develops Jimmy Giuffre (and Lennie Tristano)tradition coming from mid 50s.It is rooted in cool jazz / chamber music giving to it lot of freedom. Irniger doesn't use continued saxophone soloing techniques, he blows short clear tunes with support of free but extremely precisely tuned rhythm section. "Octopus" music is easy accessible and often sounds as freer cool jazz from the very first look.

The only disadvantage here is all compositions are similar mid-tempo songs with bassist and drummer working as Swiss watch - no changes happen till the very end. On the album's second half it can initiate some sameness feel but generally "Octopus" is great album, containing different look on advanced jazz.
