Jaimie Branch was a Brooklyn-based musician and artist working in the areas of improvisation and composition. Through her musical practice, her main interests lie in extending and expanding the technical limitations of the trumpet and the musical language of free jazz and improvised music. Before moving to Brooklyn in 2015, she was an active member of the Chicago and Baltimore creative music scenes as a performer, presenter, and recording engineer. Branch died at home in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn on August 22, 2022, at the age of 39.

Three years after their celebrated debut album Rabbit on the Run (Intakt CD 304) the Dave Gisler trio presents a live album: Guest on trumpet is Jaimie Branch. Over the past few years Dave Gisler has earned himself an impressive reputation in the free-thinking force field of contemporary jazz as a maverick sound architect on the electric guitar. On the one hand the the Dave Gisler trio loves the punch of a rock sensibility, but it cheerfully slips into quieter and calmer zones, where individual sounds and otherworldly textures remix the essences afresh. Anyone who has already seen Jaimie Branch live will know her unique way of tuning into the energy, the way she stands, takes up the instrument, and plays – natural and sovereign, incisive and melancholy, light and weighty. It’s clear from the start that this musician’s energy fires up the Dave Gisler trio. And in turn the trio’s inspiration has an effect on the trumpeter which feeds back into the group. “The music on Zurich Concert strikes a chord, in a time shaken by emotions and extremes,” writes Pirmin Bossart in the liner notes. “It’s attitude unflinching, under the surface the pulse is tender and sensual.”
