Sven B. Schreiber Her favorite instrument is the double bass - but Stefanie Kunckler plays piano, flute, and guitar as well. Given this mastery of several technically different instruments, and five years of studying music at the "Zurich University of the Arts", it comes as no surprise that she is able to write fantastic arrangements for her jazz quintet "Ymonos" with such obvious ease. The orchestration is as unusual as appealing, joining accordion and bass clarinet with the standard jazz piano trio. Favorite track: Magis.

Simon Brookes This was a 'Bird is the Worm' recommendation which I streamed through Qobuz initially. However it's so good that I really felt I had to buy it so I can listen to it forever (and tell the world too !). One of the best albums I've heard in years, really interesting and varied, in short it's a cracker IMO !

about

This multi-colored music, and the unusual orchestration of Zurich double bass player Stefanie Kunckler and her quintet Ymonos, is an invitation to journey along with her. Trained in both Zurich and New York, Stefanie treads a path between East and West, her music evoking a warm nostalgia laced in turn with euphoria and melancholy. Bathed in her sound pictures, listeners will let themselves be carried inwards to an enchanting place of escape. Ymonos’s work blends an enchanting mix of world music with the freedom of jazz.
