EP Recording

We just recorded our first EP in the renowned The Record Co  in Boston, MA. Here are a few impressions of our studio session with our engineer Ciaran de Chaud captured by Erin Crowley

 "HUG" is a European Jazz Quartett (Switzerland, Sweden, Israel) founded by Swiss saxophonist Charlotte Lang. The compositions and Charlotte Lang's variety of instruments create the foundation for their warm and contrasting sound that captivates and inspires. 

The powerful and acoustic sound of "HUG" forms a unique sound journey. 

Their debut album will be recorded in April 2023 at the renowned "The Record Co." studios in Boston.

Swiss Jazz Orchestra

Album out!


"The Music of Pilgrim" contains mostly arrangements of Christoph Irnigers quintet, which were recorded live at last year's Unerhört! Festival in Zurich CH and is now available on NWOG Records for purchase, download or streaming on your favorite platforms here! Christoph Irniger and the SJO are a combination that fits very well. For the premiere of the collaboration last year, Irniger immediately wrote an evening-long program. A live album was created from it.
