Subtitle of the album is "25 Very Good Years" and indeed as always JAQ stands for high-quality soulful Jazz with a nice entertaining touch. The songs are repacked in new and special arrangements and the vocal orientated listener as well as the Jazz fan, who wants to hear extended solos, gets what he needs! On these live recordings you'll hear all this loose and fresh!

Wiener Standards

A new swingy sight on the best of the original Vienna Songs by the Albert Mair Trio (JAQ) and friends.
(feat. Richard Österreicher, Paul Fields, Martin Fuss...)

Almost simultaneosly at a time when Musicals and Classic songs were being written in America for the entertainment branch (from George Gerschwin to Cole Porter and many other songwriters who had come from Vienna and made their homes in the US) the classical “Wienerlied” (from Hermann Leopoldi to Robert Stolz) evolved. Both music forms of the highest quality, differing only in their interpretations.The Philharmonics and Jazz musicians in America presented their songs in perfect completion as far as arrangements, harmonics and instrumentation were concerned and therefore the compositions, popular, inextinguishable and ever-present and became “Standards”.
In Vienna, on the other hand, the first-class compositions were mostly performed at Heurigen (Wine bars direct at the wineyards) and in Cafes by more or less qualified “Music Makers”. The songs became renowned but their true quality remained hidden.
What could have been more fitting than to take these rich, equally popular Viennese compositions and interpret them as Standards, “Wiener Standards”.
