Irène Schweizer and Pierre Favre are two likeminded spirits. Since 1966 they play together on a regular bases. With their creative mind, artistic virtuosity and open attitude these two modern jazz pioneers represent the best of what Switzerland has to offer. Their concert in John Zorn’s avant garde club ’The Stone’, in New York as a part of the two week long ’Intakt’-festival there, was rated by the jazz magazine ’New York City Jazz Record’ as one of the best concerts in 2012.
In spring 2013 Schweizer-Favre gave three performances on home ground in the cultural centre ’Rote Fabrik’ (Zürich) in front of an enthusiastic audience. The best moments of the concerts are captured on this ultimate ’live’-album of these ’two titans of jazz’ (The Guardian).
