Eskelin - Weber - Griener

Tenor saxophonist Ellery Eskelin, bassist Christian Weber and drummer Michael Griener recorded The Pearls in Switzerland at the end of a European Tour, about a year after the release of their successful first album for Intakt Records, Sensations Of Tone. On this latest set, the trio interpreted several classic ragtime melodies in a traditionally upbeat manner - Scott Joplin's "Magnetic Rag", Russell Robinson's "Eccentric Rag", Count Basie/Harry Edison's " Jive At Five" and the title cut by Jelly Roll Morton. But they also recorded several improvisatory, exploratory original that revel the substantial depth of their artistry.
