More adventures on my musical quest with Christoph Irniger’s Pilgrim and Andreas Schärer’s Hildegard Lernt Fliegen

This coming weekend I'll continue my quest for musical transformation. On Friday in Basel, saxophonist Christoph Irniger's Pilgrim will be at the Bird's Eye; the band features two musicians I saw last month, pianist Stefan Aeby and drummer Michael Stulz from the Stefan Aeby Trio, as well as bassist Rafaele Bossard (whom I've heard before with Joe Haider) and guitarist Dave Gisler (whom I'm looking forward to hearing for the first time). Then on Saturday in Zug and on Sunday in Freiburg in Breisgau, I'll be "looking for adventure" again with vocalist Andreas Schärer and Hildegard Lernt Fliegen — the thirteenth and fourteenth times I will have seen this extraordinary band live.
