album info

Elian Zeitels debut album includes eleven pieces of music that show a clear direction of aesthetic and musical choices as well as synthesizing the singers interests. Elian can be considered a lyrical singer, however she has found free improvisation to be an additional form of expression in which she enjoys using her voice in a more experimental, rhythmical way. At the heart of the compositions are lyrics written in English and Swiss German, the singer's native tongue. Embedded in a classical jazz piano trio, the songs clearly follow a jazz aesthetic with the trumpet and trombone occasionally providing solos or background sounds. The band members are Lukas Derungs (piano), Mischa Frey (double bass) and Sascha Frischknecht (drums). Peter Schärli (trumpet) and Florian Weiss (trombone) are featured in six of the tunes. The band presents a variety of sounds from the more forceful and dense end of the spectrum, all the way to the clarity of chamber music, filled with light and lively grooves - always serving the lyrics.
