"Intercity - or what do the cities Basel and Cologne mean to me? both towns are in a certain way, birthplaces of my music ideas. Basel is the town where I live and where I wrote the music of this production. Cologne is the town of the WDR radio station where we played and recorded everything and where it has been broadcast from.

Harald Banter is the founder of the fantastic ensemble 4 plus 6 (four saxaphones and six rhythmn instruments) and he is one of the last real big band leaders who are not afraid to record orchestras in their complete sound, that means with as little overdubs as possible. And that way, composers and arrangers could finally be proud about living and dynamic sounding recordings. During more than ten years these sessions took place two or three times a year and the arrangers of 4 plus 6 received regular orders to present their musical ideas without any compromises towards commercial needs. For me this time was full of creativity. It is a great feeling to write and compose for an ensemble of such outstanding international levels and I was full of pleasure to hear the recordings in the studio together with those great artists.

Thanks to Professor Harald Banters interventions and thanks for the help of Brambus Records
