Travelogue: 'Foreclosure' - 2018

Following their instrumental debut ('Eastbound', 2003) and two studio productions with singers Sophie Dunér ('Chinese Soul', 2011) and Coco Rouzier ('The Light Is On', 2016), Werner Fischer and his band Travelogue present their new album 'Foreclosure', a passionate instrumental live recording. In addition to Fischer's driving jazz compositions, the recording shows the lyrical sides of the band as well as a certain affinity for free improvisation.

Travelogue: 'The Light Is On' - 2016

"It was in late 2010 when I played my first jazz gig at Beijing’s legendary CD Blues Café. It featured Coco Rouzier, the gutsy and soulful songstress from Washington D.C. who had travelled half of the world singing in five star hotels and on cruises. She not only proved to be a first rate jazz singer but also a resourceful entertainer who turned the joint into a boiling pot on that blessed Sunday evening. What started out as a nonchalant classy jazz gig turned into a rambunctious party that lasted until the wee hours of the next morning. Coco probably knew what she was in for when in the middle of her second set she called on the band to play Hernandez’ Hideaway, a tango. She had probably heard of the Finnish affinity for that dance - as the joint was packed with the remainder of a choir from Turku who fully lived up to its reputation. It was not before long that everybody was served severe shots of Vodka that had lasting effects on the band as well as the crowd - but I knew then that someday we would record an album together." (Werner Fischer)

Travelogue: Soundtrack for 'NO FLASH' - 2012

The documentary film portrait NO FLASH. Homage to Ricardo Rangel (1924–2009) directed by exhibition curator Bruno Z'Graggen with camera work by video film-maker Angelo Sansone (both from Zurich) is a tribute to the life work of Ricardo Rangel.The film shows sequences from 2003 with Ricardo Rangel at the time of the opening of the exhibition Iluminando Vidas. The scenes from 2003 are interwoven with longer interview passages from the year 2011 with Alexandre Pomar (*1947, Lisbon) and photographer Sérgio Santimano (*1956, Lourenço Marques / Maputo). Pomar is a respected Portuguese art critic and journalist who lives in Lisbon.The result is a film portrait that gives an insight into the life and work of an outstanding photographer and a charismatic personality, a man with a passion for photography and jazz, full of life, humorous, independent and incorruptible, hugely productive and with a sensitive eye for people in difficult contexts. The documentary's music was composed, arranged and performed by Werner Fischer and his Boston jazz unit.

Werner Fischer's Travelogue: 'Chinese Soul' - 2011

"The guy’s already half Chinese: for when she was standing before him like an armed angel in the hallway, he didn’t even blink once. Though she had been haunting his dreams since the day he had laid eyes on her on that worn sofa in a seedy country shrink’s practice way back in the seventies, all he did was push aside the thought of kissing her good and hard on the mouth in a vain attempt to force open those sealed lips, maybe getting at her petrified soul and detonate inside her labyrinthine lotus garden. No, not him..." (Jan Krohn)

The Sam Trümpy Memorial Jazz Coalition featuring Jürg Wickihalder: 'Live!' - 2009

The SAM TRÜMPY MEMORIAL JAZZ COALITION is a transatlantic jazz group dedicated to the musical legacy of the late composer and tenorist Sam Trümpy and consists of eight experienced jazz musicians from Switzerland, the U.S.A and Canada.
Sam Trümpy was a Swiss music pioneer from the 1960s until his untimely passing in 2003. His inheritance includes a collection of great original jazz compositions. In 2007 guitarist Werner Tian Fischer initiated a tribute band, the «Sam Trümpy Memorial Jazz Coalition». Eight jazz musicians with Swiss roots contributed their individual arrangements to Trümpy’s compositions.
The band did a successful concert tour of Switzerland in August/September 2007. The last concert of that tour was recorded by sound engineer Patrik Schwitter who is also famous for his recording of the very last performance of Sun Ra and His Arkestra.

All Standard Guitars 'Just Guitars?' - 2009

"Delta Blues meets Django Reinhardt's gypsy heart - with tremendous musical sensitivity and without rivalry the two guitarists cover a wide stylistic field from the music of the 1930s until today." (Bruno Spörri)
Werner Fischer and Michael Giger have been working together regularly since summer 2006 to their audience's and their own great pleasure and satisfaction. Their repertoire ranges from classical jazz songs of the Great American Songbook to popular movie themes and contemporary Americana. They interpret their music with the nonchalance of jazz - yet always with a modern and sensual attitude. All Standard Guitars combine the stupendous virtuosity of the younger with the well-seasoned swing of the older player. The melody & the song are always at the center of their musical interaction. Their first CD was released on Altrisuoni Records - The Swiss Jazz Label.

The Bouncing Bits: 'Groove Ya!' - 2007

Die Bouncing Bits haben eine erstaunliche Wirkung: Jeder, der sie gehört hat, ertappt sich noch nach Tagen dabei, wie er leise mit den Fingern schnippt, den Füssen wippt und verzückt lächelt. Diese Band swingt alles schwerelos, schliesslich besitzt sie die Happyness eines Nat King Cole, den Groove einer Oscar-Peterson-Combo und die Präzision einer Basie-Band.
Das Credo der Bouncing Bits lautet "Joy and Class": Sie vereinen hinreissenden Swing mit hoher musikalischer Qualität, sprechen also sowohl jene an, die es lieben, beschwingt mitzuwippen, als auch die, denen originelle Arrangements und virtuose Soli zusagen.
Swing is here!
