Just over one hundred years ago, the Great Harry Hillman was formed. Its American nameake had won three gold medals at the 1904 Summer Olympics. Despite its naming convention, the group is Lucerne-based. It is not well-known here. The quartet is a group effort in composition and performance. This democratic philosophy is evident in the diverse selection of music on Tilt. Nils Fischer, a German multi-reedist, plays the saxophone as well as the bass clarinet. He prefers a non-genre-specific setting. In 2008, he moved to Switzerland and studied with a variety of regional artists. He also earned a Master in Performance degree. David Koch, a Swiss native, is a guitarist. He was originally a flautist, playing a wide range of music, from Irish folk to Klezmer. Samuel Huwyler, a Master of Arts and another Swiss citizen, began his musical career as a guitarist. He then switched to bass. Dominik Mahnig was raised in Willisau, the home of the Swiss Jazz Festival. This setting would have a profound influence on his musical career. He has been a drummer since he was a young age and has performed with Simon Nabatov and Mark Dresser, among other musicians.
