Jorge Rossy Vibes TrioPizza Express Jazz Club, W1D 3RW , [Venue Details]
Puerta, Jorge Rossy’s first ECM recording as a bandleader, is also his first release of a trio recording in which he plays vibes and marimba.
When he began to perform as a vibes player 7 years ago, Jorge focused on playing in larger ensembles and arranged his compositions in ways that did not necessarily feature the vibes as the central instrument. In this recording, he puts the vibes and the marimba front and center and in this sense, too, the CD represents his evolution as a vibes player.
The compositions are not new but the role of the vibes and marimba and the overall rendering of the tunes are completely fresh and distinct. Jorge is accompanied by Jeff Ballard on drums and Robert Landfermann on bass. With such strong players and in a trio setting, the compositions allow for an intimacy and a space that give all three musicians an equal musical presence. The transparency of the sound enhances this sense that each musician takes an equal role in shaping the character and mood of the tunes. It also reveals a deep aesthetic affinity between the three musicians.
