Live Sound

Released 2013
produced by Mathieu Jaton for Montreux Jazz Festival


WYHIWWP – What You Hear Is What We Played! Yes indeed, and that’s exactly the best way to describe the Philipp Fankhauser Plays Montreux Jazz Festival album. After four successful studio albums in the last nine years, Philipp Fankhauser finally releases a live-in-concert recording of his performance for the opening evening of the 46th Montreux Jazz Festival in late June, 2012. This album –  in the meantime Philipp’s 13th! – is already his favorite: This is how Fankhauser sounds “à la minute” – a first in his extensive catalogue. Having been able to make the album in Montreux makes him even happier – fulfilling a nearly 30 year old dream of Philipp. It was Claude Nobs’ express wish to produce and release the CD and DVD together with Philipp. In Autumn 2012 they sealed the deal with a handshake and brought it to life. Following Claude’s wish and philosophy, the sound has not been altered: it has been mixed for your listening pleasure and edited in length to fit the formats.

“Nous devons absolument sortir ce concert ! Ce n’est pas un Suisse qui joue du blues, c’est un bluesman, et un bon !” Dans l’ambiance d’après-concert, ces paroles de Claude Nobs pouvaient sonner comme des compliments enthousiastes. Mais une fois le Festival passé, l’automne dernier, Claude a proposé à Philipp de co-produire un CD, doublé d’un bonus DVD. Les deux hommes se sont serrés la main en guise de contrat, et le projet était lancé. 

Non seulement aujourd’hui le CD / DVD est prêt, mais il est de plus fidèle à l’esprit originel : être au plus proche du public, retrouver l’énergie de ce soir-là, accepter la photographie sonore instantanée d’un moment. Pour aller au bout de la démarche, un LP en édition limitée sort en parallèle, clin-d’oeil amusé à un retour permanent aux sources, en blues encore plus qu’ailleurs.
