Philipp Schaufelberger & Pierre Favre
«Das Duo Philipp Schaufelberger, Gitarre, Pierre Favre, Drums, agiert aus einer Leichtigkeit heraus, in der Kraftmeiereien und Sperrigkeit ganz natürlich auf der Strecke bleiben. In der Farbwerkstätten der beiden Klangmaler konnten andere Qualitäten wie Reduktion, Sensibilität und eine neugierige Unbeschwertheit gedeihen.» P. Bossart

Pierre Favre, Samuel Blaser and Philipp Schaufelberger @ The Stone 3/13/12

3 people I never heard of! It was a fantastic ensemble. I bought a CD of the drummer’s when I was there the week before.

I love it and didn’t want to miss what might be my one chance to see him live. That was a good move since he is incredibly awesome.

I loved having a trombone and guitar to round out the trio.

Pierre Favre Ensemble: Le Voyage (2011)


Pierre Favre is a scion of the improvisation scene in Europe and beyond.

Those two qualities in many respects sum up the music on this disc. While the antithesis of those qualities does not necessarily make for compelling music, in this case of this recording the overall mood is slightly soporific, as if the music could at any time simply merge with the background, never to catch the ear again.
