Werner Fischer (g) and Fridolin Berger (b) proudly announce the release of their long-awaited duo debut album with PBR Records Ltd., Fishberger's Fancy. It features accomplished saxophonist Denise Steinegger on three selections.
The production boasts a unique, transparent sound which has no safety net underneath and thus manages to speak to the listener in an unusually direct and pure way. What is more, it effortlessly accommodates such different idioms as swing, funk, pop and classically inspired guitar music on one and the same CD. This astonishing effect is ensured by Werner Fischer’s consistently superb playing on both acoustic and electric guitar and by Fridolin Berger’s sonorous and swinging double bass throughout.
