The house quartet, which has been in existence since 2001, is a highly flexible ensemble that has grown together over the years. From lyrical nuances to explosive grooves, the formation masters the entire sound palette of contemporary jazz and implements itself in a very personal way. The house quartet cultivates a form of playing that uses free improvisation, exquisite original compositions and jazz standards: a process that continues to this day. A compact band that unites strong voices of the Swiss jazz scene and comes along from a single cast. In addition to instrumental skills, this requires a healthy dose of experience, courage and a lot of humour. The charm and freshness of this band, their lustful and intelligent interaction, make this band a shining example of how jazz is more alive than ever.

Christian Müller opens the evening with a palaver on the occasion of the International Day of Jazz. The conversation with the house quartet focuses on formative musical moments in the lives of the four outstanding musicians. Humorous anecdotes are just as important to elicit as difficult phases and hurdles on the way to becoming a successful jazz musician.
