Robert Wuerz' vibrant, lively alto sax highlights new album
(Published: August 05, 2020)

Robert Wuerz has just released his brand new jazz release with Bob Spice Quartet - In der Schwebe.

This record features vibrant compositions that are infused with the liveliness and spontaneity of jazz. However, the artist contrasts this expressiveness with a strong melodic backbone that is inspired by classical music. On top of this, the rhythm section builds a lush soundscape that creates an immersive soundscape for the intricate melodies.

All of the songs on the album are Wuerz' original compositions yet there is also a diverse number of musical voices and influences on the release. That's because he created these songs to allow space for each artist to improvise and add their creative flair into the mix.

The opening number is "Im Geäst," and this song immediately captures the listener's attention. The track has a contemporary and professional production aesthetic that brings out the best of each instrument. In particular, the alto sax plays several expressive and poignant melodies that are fully supported by the rich instrumental backing. There is also upbeat and uplifting energy to "Im Geäst" that makes you want to listen to it again and again. This is a strong start to the LP and the distinctive and unique composition hooks you in for the rest of the album.

One of the highlights of the release is "Der Mönch am Meer." The cut kicks off with an intricate and vibrant melody that is then joined by the rest to the quartet. The expressive nature of the opening line makes you sit up in your seat and take notice. The composition also builds gradually to dizzying heights. There almost seems to be electricity in the air with this tune as there is a driving momentum that is supported by the theatrical styling of the alto sax.

To finish off the record "The Picture of Dorian Gray" gives a more poignant and introspective end. The title is based on the Oscar Wilde novel of the same name and just like the protagonist of the story, it has a dark energy to it. In this track, the musicians have a lively relationship and it feels like they are listening and responding to each other with every note. In this track, the alto sax and double bass provide a deep melancholy feel to the entire composition.

The quartet is made up of Wuerz on alto sax, Gerhard Gschlößl on trombone, Maike Hilbig with double bass, and Lucia Martinez on drums. The group has been awarded accolades for their musical output and in 2019 they received the Studio Prize of the Berlin Senate.
