|This is the third release by Michel Wintsch (piano) on Leo Records with his fellow-musicians Gerry Hemingway (drums), Banz Oester (bass). (The last piece on the CD has been recorded with the guest Ray Anderson on trombone.) The title of the CD very precisely reflects the nature of the music, and it seems that Michel Wintsch, who wrote most pieces, is moving towards a new aesthetics which can be defined as "less is more". The understatement is always stronger than the overstatement.
Recorded live in Sion, Ferme Asile, Switzerland, June 14, 2003, in Castle Life Studio, Fribourg, Switzerland, June 16, 2003 by Gonzague Ruffieux, and in Studio du Flon, April 4, 2000 by Christian Guggenbühl.
