«Lazy Day» was released digital only on 10th May 2022 and contains two tracks of which the basics were recorded during three weekends in spring 2021 while Corona had destroyed all live gigs. These were live recordings, two to four takes for each track, which built the base of the full album (to be released in September 2022).
The title track «Lazy Day» is composed by bass player Jean-Pierre Schaller, a smoothly rolling theme which evolves smoothly throughout the whole piece passing a dialogue like solo by bass and trumpet and culminating towards the end in looping cascades over the main theme.
The second track, composed by trumpet player Kriz «Flew» Flueler, is called «Standing Back» a relaxed laid back major/minor exercise, which is cleverly hidden by a sophisticated melody. In the studio the basic tracks were enriched by a multiplied Kriz playing additional trumpets, flugelhorns, valve trombones and even a tuba. Experts can hear a whole bunch of vintage electroacoustic instruments played by Julien Boss.
