Jürg Wickihalder is a Zurich saxophonist who works with pianist Irène Schweizer. He published last year the first CD of his own music, in a duo with the equally fine pianist Chris Wiesendanger. Now Wickihalder, the «master of melody» (Andy Hamilton, Jazzreviews), presents his Overseas Quartet with Achille Succi, Mark and Kevin Zubek. «Subsequently, there is an abundance of song and dance on this impressive debut of Jürg Wickihalder’s Overseas Quartet,» writes Bill Shoemaker in the Liner notes.
