"The new album by the trio DEPART contains highly explosive, groove based music. Three very talented musicians form the new line-up: saxophonist Harry Sokal from Vienna, bass player Heiri Känzig from Zurich and the young drummer Martin Valihora from Slovakia who commutes between Bratislava and New York. Together they break new ground. This is DEPART's step into a new era.

DEPART is a crucial part of the European innovation in jazz. After 30 years of existence the band now releases their album REFIRE on Intakt Records. Sokal says: "But above all our music has become unpredictable and surprising again. Within a precisely delineated framework we have all three become more capricious; that ensures the tension and spontaneity which keeps our music alive."

Recorded in the 'Hard Studios' in the city of Winterthur, Switzerland the album contains 13 pieces most of them composed by Heiri Känzig. The music boils, pulsates and grooves in rousing perfection. "Their way of providing entertainment involves musical sophistication, intelligence and craft, along with good taste, witty playing and inventiveness," writes jazz critic Christian Rentsch in the liner notes"
