'Two musicians representing two different generations of guitarists have found their common denominator: timeless compositions, played with metronomic certitude and a clear sense of swing. With tremendous musical sensitivity and without rivalry the two guitarists cover a wide stylistic field from the music of the 1930s until today. Delta Blues meets Django Reinhardt's gypsy heart - a sonic delicacy, to be recommended not only to those obsessed with the guitar.' Bruno Spoerri (Swiss jazz legend) Werner Fischer (Berklee Alumnus) and Michael Giger have been working together regularly since summer 2006 to their audience's & their own great pleasure and satisfaction. Their repertoire ranges from classical jazz songs of the Great American Songbook to popular movie themes and contemporary Americana. They interpret their music with the nonchalance of jazz - yet always with a modern and sensual attitude. All Standard Guitars combine the stupendous virtuosity of the younger with the well-seasoned swing of the older player. The melody & the song are always at the center of their musical interaction. Their first CD was released in 2009 on 'Altrisuoni Records - The Swiss Jazz Label'. Werner Tian Fischer was educated at the Hot Club de Jazz in Lisbon, the Swiss Jazz School in Berne und at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. During the 1990s he fronted the widely acclaimed pop-folk group STARFISH. After several years of expanding his musical horizon on the North American East Coast he returned to Switzerland in 2003 with a bag full of original compositions, some of which he recorded for his album 'Eastbound'. In 2004 he led together with saxophonist Jürg Wickihalder the FISCHER WICKIHALDER JAZZ COALITION on a tour to Beijing and the North of China. In 2007 he initiated the SAM TRÜMPY MEMORIAL JAZZ COALITION, a transatlantic octet celebrating the music of the late tenorist. Michael Giger grew up in Lucerne, Switzerland. Heavily influenced by virtuoso shredding guitarists as well as blues players, he played in several rock groups during his youth. His studies at the Lucerne Jazz School opened his ears for jazz cats such as Pat Martino and Joe Pass. He studied with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Christy Doran and Helmut Kagerer. Upon completion he started to play in several acoustic duos as well as funk and soul groups. Guest: Estella Benedetti (voc)
