Omri Ziegele, saxophonist, composer and und leader of the small orchestra Billiger Bauer presents a duo with younger Zürich pianist Yves Theiler – after Ziegel had made his musical way for at least a decade and a half previously with the pianist Irène Schweizer (and two very successful CDs).
Bert Noglik writes about the music of Omri Ziegele - Yves Theiler: "Reaching the inner relationships at the core of music-making: the piano defines the space, grounds the saxophone's high-altitude flights: heaven and earth. But the instruments also soar and fly forward together, in correlation and in contrast, bound together yet open. Omri Ziegele and Yves Theiler react to each other in an instant, and also interact there where they might appear to be miles apart. They break each piece apart, pull back the curtain, abandon the safe ground. And all at once, when the sounds begin to warm our hearts, the melodies start to dance."

So good, I bought this twice by mistake! An album that, while full of intense mood, remains accessible. I struggled to pick a favourite track, but the way the tension builds on Vessels is simply irresistible. Mike Kidd
