"Werner Fischer & Michael Giger, two musicians representing two different generations of guitarists have found their common denominator: timeless compositions, played with metronomic certitude and a clear sense of swing. With tremendous musical sensitivity and without rivalry the two guitarists cover a wide stylistic field from the music of the 1930s until today. Delta Blues meets Django Reinhardt's gypsy heart – a sonic delicacy, to be recommended not only to those obsessed with the guitar."
(Bruno Spoerri, Swiss jazz legend)
Werner Fischer and Michael Giger have been working together regularly since summer 2006 to their audience's and their own great pleasure and satisfaction. Their repertoire ranges from classical jazz songs of the Great American Songbook to popular movie themes and contemporary Americana. They interpret their music with the nonchalance of jazz - yet always with a modern and sensual attitude. All Standard Guitars combine the stupendous virtuosity of the younger with the well-seasoned swing of the older player. The melody and the song are always at the center of their musical interaction.
