Who would have thought that the title of his 16th album would become program in the Corona year 2020? In March of the year 2020, Philipp Fankhauser and his extraordinary musical comrades-in-arms met the same fate as billions of other citizens of the earth. The world seemed to stand still. And in terms of their "work," giving concerts, it did. From March to September, countless concerts had to be cancelled, or some of them postponed and re-booked. So Fankhauser and his brave men were condemned to twiddle their thumbs for the time being.
"Let Life Flow", Philipp Fankhauser's 16th album, holds a few surprises - musical, stylistic, linguistic and personal. Philipp Fankhauser is and remains a blues musician with heart and soul. But what he started with his last album "I'll Be Around" in 2017 he continues with a sense for subtle nuances. The soul-soaked blues continues to be his strength and the try-my-love-esque Fankhauser/Walker ballads are not missing on his new record.
His 1995 hit "Members Only" comes in a new guise and the cover of country superstar Vince Gill's "The Rock Of Your Love" might elicit a tear from one or the other. "Chasch Mers Gloube" by Hanery Amman is just as programmatic as Lucio Dallas "Milano". Together with Flo Bauer he rocks out on "Stone Cold & Blue"! And anyway....
While the "I'll Be Around Tour" was bursting with the large number of musicians - Fankhauser was on the road with horns and backing vocals - he will bring the "Let Life Flow Tour" to the stage with his favorite formation, the quintet.
