Philippe Chrétien - sax

Philippe Chrétien, born in 1958 in Basel and trained in piano and trumpet by Chester Gill, found his preferred instrument, the tenor saxophone, in 1979. He gathered international performing experience with highly acclaimed musicians and DJs exploring a vast musical diversity. This is how his particular and very personal style evolved.
In his solo project he also proves to be an accomplished composer, producer and DJ. In elegant understatement, his gala-performances are all about creating a relaxed and sensual atmosphere. Philippe Chrétien is immediately recognised by his soulful sound and feeling. In the words of Jack Kreisberg (Blue Note, New York): "He's got a killer sound!".

Markus Fritzsche gave up his medical studies half way through for a career in music. He's never regretted it for a minute.
A self taught musician, he won a silver medal at the 1985 Cannes Film Festival for his music to the "Canada Dry Tough in the West" TV advert, his break-through in the film business. From then on he wrote the music for countless cinema films and TV advertisements, some of which were seen by half the world. His best-known work in Switzerland: is the Migros jingle.


His "alter-ego" has always been as a bass player. It got him out of the studio into the wide world, to contact with people, to new challenges, and particularly to teamwork. Over the years he's played with many Swiss and international stars in every style imaginable, with highlights including the main stage at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
With Philippe Chrétien as his ideal partner, he's now reached a high point with saxnbass. In his typical, highly musical style.

Reto Bischofberger ​is an experienced drummer in many music styles consolidated in live and studio sessions. He played in numerous party and theatre combos and never denied his enthusiasm for the great music of Frank Zappa. Progressing through elements of afro-american, Brazilian and other musical influences his drumming became the beauty of a rather minimal approach with subtle flow and phrasing. Somehow like a drifting dance floor that links together while swinging from grove to groove creating an open textured base for the other artists to celebrate a stunning dialogue. The latest collaboration 'markusphilippe plus bischi' has a voice of its own. Listeners are invited to lay back and enjoy the integrity, quality and passion of this formidable trio.

Philippe Chrétien plays with Tommy Schneider And Friends on another album available on CDs.
