Contemporary Jazz / Crossover. With Tales Of The Old World pianist-composer Peter Zihlmann presents a threepart suite of 80 minutes length. Zihlmann, a graduate of the eclectic Lucerne Jazz College, mixes in his music successfully the genres of jazz, rock and folk. The agile playing 14-piece ensemble consists of young Swiss jazz talents from nearly all parts of the country. Zihlmann added to the conventional big band personnel strings, which give the music a satin touch.
