Soul is a must when cooperating with Vogel, as it is mastered by the musicians he had assembled for the first section of his five-part-cycle in the little Austrian village Bezau. We don’t speak here of velvet and silk; „Vogel perspectives” presents complicated music – no question – but performed with a great simplicity. dez 2011-12-01

Elements of jazz are meanwhile an integrated part of electronic music, rock, hip hop or whatever, and by no means merely a saxophone solo now and then, which usually used to stand for jazz. It is the self determination, the knowledge to be able to select different routes. An excellent example is perhaps the just now obtained universitality of the earlier named jazz music of the compilation „Vogel Perspective Vol. 1“ (Boomslang Rec.) by the percussionist Alfred Vogel from Vorarlberg. In times of data exchange via Internet and inexpesnive flights, a location like Bezau is not necessarily a synonym for provinciality, but may temporarily turn into an entire music cosmos when stars from overseas and local friends create a stilistically varied music as Vogel intends to release on five in this compilation and anxiously awaited albums. Terra incognita around the corner.
