Most of the music performed is brand new and thus not titled yet, only "Auswahl" [Selection] and #6 are older compositions. The working title of #3 is "Ballad in F sharp".
Arno Troxler is the son of Niklaus Troxler, director of the Willisau Jazz Festival.


I forgot to announce yesterday's second seed of mine by Jim Black, doing a little studio appearance similar to the one by the Nouveaux Monstres, with some talking, a solo improvisation, and later a duet with Popol Lavanchy on double bass, another of the guests in the studio:

Note: Yvan Ischer with guests doing a live show. Thierry Lang was in the studio, too, talking about his new Blue Note disc, "Dedicated to You".

Below is the full setlist of this edition of "JazzZ", there was plenty more talk, I sorted things out and kept the interesting parts, as well as the only music that's not commercially issued, two spontaneous performances in the radio studio, live on air
