Traffic Bins

ORIGIN 82610

“A compatible crew of participants, all good natured risk-takers, makes Twopool a most unique ensemble worth checking out.”
John Barron, The Jazz Word

The Bern, Switzerland-based quartet's very personal sound developed when the musicians, coming in with widely varied backgrounds, tastes and ages, decided to explore musical possibilities through a monthly concert series that ended up lasting over three years. With a healthy sense of "play," saxophonist Andrea Oswald, trombonist Andreas Tschopp, cellist Jonas Tauber, and drummer Christian Wolfarth, create real-time compositions that highlight their unique rapport, instrumentation and personalities.

emusic Review (Jayson Greene)
Quartet of alto sax, trombone, drums, and cello for some serious avant-garde music. Chaotic free jazz interspersed with sublime classical interludes. If you need a dissonance fix, stop here and listen. ...
