The Jazzwerkstatt Bern is a musicians' collective. It's a house with many rooms - the members all play together in different ensembles, they've got a big band parked out in the garage that they rev up on weekends, they've got a record label bubbling in the basement and they organize an eponymous festival. The Jazzwerkstatt Bern's raison d'etre is new music: to provide a setting for tis creation and development, to foster the exchange of ideas between artists and to present the results to the widest possible audience. In February of 2013 the Jazzwerkstatt invited roughly 80 musicians from Switzerland, Germany, USA, Poland, Sweden, South Africa, Panama, Italy and England over for dinner (so to speak). For five days and five long nights they tinkered, experimented and performed 18 concerts - most comprised of music conceived especially for the Werkstatt, rehearsed in the afternoon and premiered in the evening. This CD represents a sampling of the music created at that epic event. Ladies and gentlemen, we submit for your consideration: the Sixth Jazzwerkstatt Bern.
