Irene Schweizer | Chicago Reader

Irene Schweizer

Swiss pianist Irene Schweizer was recognized as an important jazz instrumentalist by her teens, but amid the cultural and political upheavals of the mid-60s she committed herself to forging a more personal vision and developed a heavily percussive style. This 2005 video documentary by Gitta Gsell combines archival footage, interviews with Schweizer and her peers, and extended performances to construct a vivid portrait of the reticent artist, highlighting her collaborative spirit, her trailblazing status in Switzerland as a female jazz player, and her membership in the influential Feminist Improvising Group. 75 min.
