"Echoes" presents 7 compositions by Markus Stauss, performed by Hans Anliker (trombone), Oliver Vogt (viola & violin), Pit Kayser (keyboards) and Markus Stauss (tenor, soprano and bass saxophone).
The majority of these pieces had previously been recorded and released in a different setting and on various Markus Stauss albums.

As the album title might suggest, the quartet gives a new interpretation to some of Markus Stauss' older compositions. The originally experimental jazz pieces get a contemporary classical treatment, and it suits them very well.

If you're only familiar with Markus Stauss' experimental jazz and rock output, "Echoes" will be an excellent addition.

Recommended listening.
