Samuel Blaser | Russ Lossing | Billy Mintz ::: TRIPLE DIP

Swiss trombonist and composer Samuel Blaser joins forces with pianist and composer Russ Lossing. Two masters of jazz and improvised music, often brought together in large groups but rarely in a duo or trio. They invite Billy Mintz to form a high-flying trio.

Samuel Blaser joue l’aujourd’hui,
— Frank Bergerot, Jazz Magazine

une manière exemplaire de jouer la musique d’un instant qui déjà dessine le futur. Un pur régal pour des oreilles attentives.
— Dernières Nouvelles du Jazz, Xavier Prévost

Um jogo de formas e sombras muito bonito. Tocaram no limite da simplicidade, do vazio, numa pureza emocionante.
— Jazz.pt Gonçalo Falcão

A virtuoso trombonist with a sumptuous sound and confoundingly plastic phrasing, Samuel Blaser is also an inspired composer, striving in the various ensembles he leads to balance a sense of form with the spontaneity of improvisation. By joining forces today with two prestigious representatives of the American school of jazz and improvisation, pianist Russ Lossing and drummer Billy Mintz, Blaser sets out to explore the register of the voice, common to all three instruments, in an asserted "chamber" context and from an entirely original repertoire. This intimate, resolutely lyrical music brilliantly plays on the richness and complementarity of timbres, elevating the "trialogue" to the status of a major art form.
