Weightlessly light and grounded at the same time. That’s the sound of the music on the album Bossa, Ballads and Blues by the Bassface Swing Trio with Special Guest Bruno Muller.
The album features 8 standards including Estate by Bruno Martino, Prelude to a Kiss by Duke Ellington, Georgia On My Mind and Stardust by Hoagy Carmichael, Black Coffee by Sonny Burke & Paul Francis Webster, The Shadow Of Your Smile by Johnny Mandel, Laura by David Raksin and I Can’t Get Started by Vernon Duke.
This trio has never been so relaxed and airy. Bassist Jan-Philippe Wadle plucks cloudy bass lines, Florian Hermann plays drums in a gripping yet reserved manner and Thilo Wagner is a lyrical pianist on the noble Fazioli F228 Grand Piano.
With special guest Bruno Müller they have invited one of the most renowned German Jazz guitarists to play on this recording. These four musicians celebrate the classics of Jazz history casually and gently, but always with emotional depth and a subtly noticeable swing feeling. With his warm guitar tone, guitarist Bruno Müller fits this swing trio perfectly. His improvisations glitter filigree.
The high level at which these musicians can play is shown by the fact that they played the titles live into the DSD converter via analog mix – direct-to-disc. Honest music without a mains or ground. On the album, the listeners once again experience the most authentic sound of the instruments. These musicians elevate swing standards to the sphere of timeless beauty with their subtle playing.
