THE SAMUEL BLASER TRIO:
"TAKTLOS ZÜRICH 2017"

 

New release under legendary Swiss label Hatology

Featuring: Samuel Blaser (trombone), Marc Ducret (guitar), Peter Bruun (drums)

01. Stoppage 02. Fanfare for A New Theater / Useless Knowledge 03. Jukebox 04. How to Lose
Total running time: 56:02 minutes

Parsed into four discrete pieces, the Taktlos performance is a fluid exercise in revolving roles from the jump. Ducret trades in jagged punctuations, mercurial arpeggios and swollen drone bursts on Stoppage, the first and longest. Blaser reacts as balm, his lubricious lines drawing a direct invisible lineage back suave and soothing bop purveyers. A reversal and it’s Blaser with low brass growls as Brunn colors the corners and edges keeping a rhythmic presence which bolsters and ornaments without drawing attention away from the colloquy of his colleagues. A drum solo filled with fluid, frothing beats works as both palate cleanser and reset into an ambling blues. Later, a froggy brass ostinato serves a similar purpose signaling first clean picking from Ducret and then feral, sharp-fanged blasts of distortion. - Derek Taylor

More than just excellent
— Concerto Magazine
