Samuel Blaser is a shooting star as a trombonist. A native of Switzerland who now regularly commutes between New York and Berlin, he is a musician who has internalized all that jazz history has produced and commands over a powerful musicality. Characteristic of his talent and ability is his pristine classical intonation and free improvisation.
Within his trio’s sound, Samuel Blaser’s smooth flowing lines can at times contrast sharply with guitarist Marc Ducret’s harsher statements. A type of contrast that reminds us that tension and contradiction can be powerful elements within music and art. With their third man, the versatile percussionist Peter Bruun, they venture into bold territory combining familiar and unusual musical worlds to create a new sound experience.
