The new trio performs under the name of Travelagogo and sometimes features Mark Hauser on alto and Randy Müller on electric guitar. LET'S MAKE A JAZZ NOISE HERE!

TRAVELOGUE is a jazz group from Switzerland, founded by guitarist Werner Tian Fischer and primarily interprets Fischer’s original jazz compositions (lyrics by Jan Krohn). The rest of their live repertoire comprises of selected jazz originals by kindred spirits.
'EASTBOUND', their first album, was recorded in Boston in 2003 and released on Elch Musical Industries. For their second recording, lyricist Jan Krohn provided some of the songs with his trademark lyrics. The ensuing recording session materialized in spring 2010 at Hardstudios in Winterthur, featuring outstanding Swedish vocalist Sophie Dunér and bassist Nesin Howhannesijan from Berlin. 'CHINESE SOUL' was released the following year on Altrisuoni Records (AS 292). In autumn 2011, the band (with pianist/vocalist Mya Audrey and bassist Zhang Ling) toured extensively in China and Europe. In 2013, the band performed with British bassist Pete Townsend.
The Travelogue composition 'Bon Voyage' provided for the soundtrack of the acclaimed documentary film portrait NO FLASH. Homage to Ricardo Rangel (1924–2009) – a tribute to the work and life of the famous Mozambican photographer – which appeared in 2012 and was shown in Switzerland, Portugal, Mozambique, England, Argentina and Brazil, as well as broadcast on RTP África and on Mozambican TV. 
The line-up changed again in 2014 to include pianist Roberto Domeniconi and New York-based bassist Fredi Meli (& occasionally Hans Ermel, also on bass). Their third studio album, 'THE LIGHT IS ON', was recorded together with vocalist Coco Rouzier (USA) in autumn 2015 at Gabriel Recording in Stalden and released on the PBR Jazz label (PBR J300) the following spring. 'FORECLOSURE', a live recording from October 2016, was released in early 2018.

Das Repertoire von FISHBERGER's FANCY besteht aus Eigenkompositionen des Gitarristen, bekannten und auch weniger bekannten Standards aus dem Great American Songbook, etlichen wunderbaren Sambas und Bossas der Musica Popular Brasileira sowie ausgewählten akustischen Perlen der Popmusik. Die beiden Musiker interpretieren diese Musik mit jazziger Lockerheit, aber immer modern und sinnlich.
