Joey Baron & Sylvie Courvoisier - Willisau 2006 - exclusif

Here's a short but sweet thing I wanted to share. Sylvie Courvoisier is one of the brightest talents around in the Swiss jazz scene, I was lucky enough to hear her live and am a fan of her ECM release, "Abaton" (with her partner in life, Mark Feldman on violin, and the great Erik Friedlander on cello - look for his "Maldoror" if you're in for a solo cello ride! I got my copy from CDBaby, its still listed there.)

Anyway, Joey Baron was to appear in duo with John Zorn at last year's Willisau Jazzfestival, but Zorn couldn't make it, so Courvoisier stepped in for a duo I find much more fascinating than the scheduled Baron/Zorn duo (but that's just one man's opinion, of course).

I missed a longer broadcast of this concert (likely the full set was contained in that broadcast), but another radio station has recently broadcast two segments as a filler and here they are, at least!
