Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The Zürich trio Noisy Minority with New York tombone player Ray Anderson: Anderson is the outstanding trombonist of the American jazz scene, and Noisy Minority, Zurich saxophonist Omri Ziegele's band, is known for its modern jazz with expressive power, drive and buoyancy. Bandleader Ziegele composed eight new pieces for the album "Wrong Is Right". It's a dare-devil ride in uneven grooves and rangy tunes with free improvisation and spontaneous arrangements, approached with a bold understanding of jazz and its tradition. The music of "Wrong Is Right" is "direct, immediate, surprising, exhilarating," writes Steff Rohrbach in the linernotes "They take great pains with their powder, doling it out carefully, exploding it only when they want to - which greatly increases its effect and shows how intelligently the four musicians handle their themes."
