Morgenthaler/Röllin present their instruments at their musical and physical limits in an enthralling way on their new album, Mister Z.
Although both the guitar and the trombone are tenor instruments you don't miss either bass or soprano voices. The highly sensitive interaction between the instruments produces a sound world which, in this intensiveness, is seldom heard. Sometimes the sounds are so radically changed by electronic effects and so expertly interweaved that it's almost impossible to make out the original sound that was produced. It is however impossible to overlook the playing backgrounds and musical cultures that the two flexible musicians, which have played together for more than 10 years together in the quartet "unart 0.4" have in their blood. Sometimes a traditional song appears, or it will be completely improvised. This effortless "Instant composing" and the element of surprise are evident features of their music. It leads to an intelligent and heartfelt music, that touches the soul with a lot of charm, putting the listener under its spell with its groovy and spontaneous passages.
