Voted best album of 2011 by Downbeat, New York City Jazz Record, Philadelphia City Paper, JazzTokyo, Jazz Station and BRF online!
And this is one of the most important records ever to be released not just on Kind of blue records but anywhere, anytime. Young Swiss trombonist Samuel Blaser (who lives between New York and Berlin) is one of the next generation of jazz artists. Blaser leads a quartet with in-demand bassist Thomas Morgan, up-and-coming pianist Russ Lossing and legendary drummer, Paul Motian, confirming that he is an artist abounding with daring ideas and concepts. Taking the unusual step of blending Renaissance and Baroque period music with jazz improvisation, Blaser creates with CONSORT IN MOTION a new musical world, at once oddly familiar and yet also startingly compelling. He fashions entertaining original arrangements that emphasize his versatile playing and deep commitment to the jazz aesthetic. Winner of the Benny Golson prize, Blaser has worked in various big bands, featuring the likes of Phil Woods, Clark Terry, Jimmy Heath and Buddy DeFranco.CONSORT IN MOTION will tour the world with this project (including the USA).
