DUO CHRISTIAN MUTHSPIEL & STEVE SWALLOW SIMPLE SONGS

November 2019

When I hear the Simple Songs that Christian Muthspiel has composed and then he and his companion Steve Swallow have made twirl and soar and float, I am sometimes transported to a riverbank in summer, where the branches of a wild elder tree, stones and grasses become the neck and body of a bass guitar or the tuning slide and bell of a trombone played with thrilling ease, and even the most complex melodies seem but a virtuoso’s pleasure garden. For he who seeks to capture the simplicity that is the cornerstone of our world and our experience, and bring it to our ears, must be a virtuoso, since he has wrung sound from these stones (Christoph Ransmayr)

„On Simple Songs, Muthspiel and Swallow admirably demonstrate the beauty and perfection that the art of the duet can offer.“
DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE

„It's a true miracle of lyricism.“
