Once Forever

This recording features three musicians from Basel, Switzerland. I have had the pleasure of working with Oliver Friedli and Dominik Schürmann for many years, now, and usually perform with them while on tour in Switzerland. The songs are a mixture of standards and original compositions. The sound emulates the setting of an intimate concert in a small club or venue.



Sam Burckhardt, tenor sax
Oliver Friedli, piano
Dominik Schürmann, bass
Stefan Felber, drums


Recorded by Oliver Friedli, Basel, Switzerland, April 13, 2006
