The first solowork of Basel's bassist is a real 'solo' album; that means bass-solos without any kind of looping or overdubbing, it's simply bass. But there's absolutely nothing to be missed; exciting grooves and melodic compositions make you forget, that it's only one instrument playing. There is always something fresh and unexpected that keeps telling a whole story with a frame ('Tanz der Steinböcke' dance of the capricorns), contemplative moments ('Could I Have Known?', 'Nephilena'), action ('In flagranti', 'Spring Roll') and mysticism ('Avalanches', 'Asa Nisi Masa'). "....super-talent..." - Blick "...maybe the most versatile bass-player all over Switzerland..." - Uninet "First class technique...but not just technical gimmicks...he's much too sensitive for that." - Basler Zeitung "Last but not least, there's a special praise for the bass-player: his lines go much further than what you usually hear..." - Oltner Tagblatt "The solo-concert made the ground tremble and brought the atmosphere to the boil..." - Badische Zeitung "Buser is convincing not only with his filigree technique and clever compositions but simply with the great achievement of playing a very varied 90-minutes-set all by himself without letting you even think about being bored in any moment..." - Jazz'n'More.
