|Moritz Peter Quartet CD "Café
A straight ahead tune to introduce
William, George and myself. Muskatnuss is the German word for
nutmeg and one of the few expressions in William's
- Valse à Tijuca
Tijuca is a popular neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro.
I lived there for a while and wrote this waltz.
A little ballad in memory of my friend, the trumpet
player Theo Jost.
- Cafe Luz
"Kafi Luz" is a Swiss-German expression. It's a way
to prepare coffee in Switzerland (very thin with some liquor added)
and became one of the band's favourite drinks. A modal composition
with a tricky chord progression in the bridge. George plays a
wonderful drum solo.
- Liquor Dreams
One of my earlier compositions. I used to play it as
a ballad but for the CD we preferred to give it a Bossa touch.
- Manu's Blues
A very groovy composition from William. He wrote it
for his brother Emmanuel.
- Valse à
Rather a 6/8 than a valse. This song has been in our
repertoire since we began playing together as a group now was the
chance to record it. The composition is dedicated to William's son.
Manu plays a very nice bass solo.
"Jeri " is a short form for Jericoacoara, a wonderful
place in the northeast of Brazil. We planned to record it as a duo
with clarinet and guitar to close the album. It turned out to be a
trio with the spontaneous participation of Carlos playing
|After four years of performing regularly
together in France and Switzerland, making a second CD was a
very natural thing. For me it is a pleasure to play with the
same musicians that were featured on my first CD. William
Chabbey is an outstanding guitarist in the Paris jazz scene
with a very strong personality. His younger brother Emmanuel
Chabbey is already a well sought after bass player in France.
To play with George Brown is always a musical challenge and at
the same time a pleasure because with him everything and
everyone sounds better immediately. A special thank you goes to
Brazilian bass player Carlos Werneck for his percussion playing
on "Jeri" and to Phil Dubois, the recording
If you like the music thanks for buying a CD.
