Murmur is the expression, for a dark sound or whispering. With John Voirol and Franz Hellmüller in his band the young swiss drummer has surrounded himself with two of Switzerland’s long time Jazz giants, along side Australian bass talent Rafael Jerjen – making this debut anything but a whispering statement. Prepare yourself for deep grooving sounds, rock shaking beats and free Jazz antics. Recorded and mastered in old fashioned fully analog tradition and packed in a handmade serigraphic print this recording and this band resembles everything that Jazz was ever about.
With his quintet „Murmullo“, the drummer Clemens Kuratle is adding an exciting facet to swiss independent jazz(…) no top-head conceptual art, but eclectic, progressive jazz (..) – Tom Gsteiger (Der Bund/CH)
