  • Description

    The new album by Joe Haider, the German jazz man from Switzerland, is a masterfully arranged unity of trio and string quartet.

    With "Rosalie's Dream", recorded a few days after his 88th birthday in Zurich, Joe Haider builds on previous productions with string quartet, this time in combination with one of his current trio line-ups. Bassist Lorenz Beyeler and drummer Tobias Friedli are in their mid-40s, almost half the age of the leader. The Amigern String Quartet was recommended to him by a trusted source. After a concert visit, it was clear: the perfect choice. Even the opening arrangement of "Caravan" underlines this realization. There is the supple set sound, but there is also the wonderful lead voice of cellist Valentina Velkova and the inspired solo of first violinist Vincent Milloud.

    Six new Haider pieces were specially created for this album. We meet women in three of them: "Josefa in Palermo", "Marcellas Granddaughter" and that Rosalie who dreams - of eternal love. "They are all imaginary people." He doesn't reveal much more. These warm-sounding "women's dreams" (Haider) introduce us to very different appearances and characters. This is another facet of the artistic imagination of the Swiss national by choice, who has been at home in Bern since 1984.

    With regard to "Rosalie's Dream", he once again stresses that he was of course not interested in putting two ensembles (trio and string quartet) together, but instead in creating music for a seamlessly acting, swinging septet through arrangements in which the strings are an integral part of the creative whole. He has once again succeeded in a captivating way.
