The Christoph Irniger Pilgrim Quintet debuts their newest jazz collaboration “Crosswinds” on the Alphabet City stage. 

The quintet Pilgrim, founded by Zurich based, tenor saxophonist Christoph Irniger, is one of the most exciting ensembles in young European Jazz. Following their highly praised live album ‘Big Wheel’, Pilgrim’s fourth recording ‘Crosswinds’ is a luxuriantly open new recording that uses ambiguity as a tool. Some compositions are freely improvised, while others are completely notated, yet most lie in between, with an elasticity that reflects a life of freedom. The group specializes in a dense, well rounded sound.

Christoph Irniger is a Swiss saxophonist, composer and bandleader. According to the Sunday edition of the Neue Zürcher Zeitung he is “undoubtedly one of the greatest talents of his generation.”

Featured Musicians:

Christoph Irniger: tenor saxophone
