About the album

As a ten year old Schärli started to play the trumpet. Already during his apprenticeship as a clerk, he took lessons at the Jazz School in Lucerne. While working as a clerk in an engineering factory, he joined in 1974 as a singer, pianist and trumpet player with the blues band "Exodus" on. on. Between 1977 and 1981 he attended the "Swiss Jazz School" in Bern, where he graduated with a diploma, it was at this time on projects with Urs Blöchlinger and John Wolf Brennan. With Marco and Thomas Käppeli, he founded his own trio in 1982, which he then in 1984 with Hans Koch and guitarist Giancarlo, or saxophonist Roland Philip, expanded to a quintet (1987 Montreux Jazz Festival, Album Snip-snap 1986). From 1988, it comes to international tours with his quintet, which still regularly collaborates with Glenn Ferris as a guest musician (Germany, France, CIS, India, then Austria and Latin America) and several album recordings. In 1994, the Peter Schärli Special Sextet was formed with Ferris, Tom Varner, the thirsty, the pianist and drummer Hans Feigenwinter Béatrice Graf, he also accompanied the singer Sandy Patton, among other things on his albums, founded in 1991 with Patton and the guitarist and singer Antonia Giordano. He also appeared with Hazy Osterwald, Co Streiff, Hans Kennel, Gabriele Hasler on, Dom Um Romao, Werner Lüdi, Rick Margitza, Paul Rutherford, Tommy Meier, Saadet Türköz, Gerry Hemingway and Charlotte Hug. He also worked in various circuses such as Circus Theatre "Federlos".
Liveauftritt an der AVO Session in Basel mit einer Besetzung, welche äusserst selten anzutreffen ist. Zwei Blechbläser plus Piano und Bass sind auf den ersten Blick schwer zu erfassen, zumal weder Schlagzeug noch elektronisches Substitut angewendet wird. Was bei Rockbands als speziell gehandelt wird, scheint bei Peter Schärli normales Prozedere zu sein und so ergibt sich auch das Resultat beim Anhören. Unplugged aus Überzeugung! Die beiden Bläser ergänzen sich bestens: Schärlis Trompete tänzelt genüsslich und etwas träumerisch über die existierenden harmonischen Vorgaben während Posaunist Ferris seine Herkunft nicht verleugnen kann: er ist Amerikaner und interpretiert echt „down home“ mit bluesigem Timing und gefühlvollem Ton. Hört man dem Pianisten (Pfammatter) zu, ist das Wallis trotz herum gebotener Mär nicht so weit weg vom Jazz: Soli gespickt mit langen, interessanten Linien und rhythmischen Finessen, dazu sehr gute musikalische, dem aktuellen Jazz angepasste Ideen. Bassist Thomas Dürst tut alles, um das Quartett auch ohne Drums swingen zu lassen und hält die Sache kompetent zusammen. Für den Zuhörer ergibt sich total transparente Musik leicht fasslich und geschmackvoll dargeboten.
