Misery Is Wasted On The Miserable

ELEKTRO JIRSCHI – „Misery Is Wasted On The Miserable“
Jazz meets hip-hop and funk, and that is a really easy going manner. Jörg Leichtfried shows us in „Misery Is Wasted On The Miserable“ (art records) - a new album of his project ELEKTRO JIRSCHI - what wonderful sounds this mix of styles can pro-duce.
… In ELEKTRO JIRSCHI – „Misery Is Wasted On The Miserable“ , the pianist manages to bring various worlds of music together in a really fine way, so that a wonderfully functioning symbioses emerges. Besides the captivating light-footedness in playing the individual instruments, it is the sound of the album as a whole that stands out.
… Jörg Leichtfried, who switches from piano to a Fender Rhodes with Elektro Jirschi, and together with his band members - the Bulgarian trumpeter Alexander Wladigeroff, the Swiss percussionist Daniel Aebi, and the Viennese bassist Georg Buxhofer - develops a sound that is really groovy but in an elegant, reserved way.
… Bass lines, airy Fender-Rhodes melodies and accordion riffs, unobtrusive trumpet insets, and that’s it. Elektro Jirschi doesn’t need any more than that to light a musical fire. Musicaustria
