Music Boom

Ross, Fuhr e Huchard cercano di fare musica, non di impressionare il pubblico, utilizzando lo spazio a disposizione senza un eccessivo autocontrollo dei meccanismi dialogici.

Die musikalischen Welten, die Florian Ross schafft, sind einer ständigen Metamorphose unterworfen. Die Klänge seiner Kompositionen und Arrangements fließen unaufhörlich. Sie geraten in Strudel, verformen sich mal abrupt, mal allmählich. Und stets wird dieser Kosmos durchströmt von einem fordernden Sog, der den Sound weitertreibt – bis sich am Ende alle musikalischen Strukturen auflösen. Ins Nichts? Nein: Die Ross‘sche Musik hinterlässt Eindruck bei den Zuhörern...

The most obvious role model for the Florian Ross Trio is Keith Jarrett’s band with Jack DeJohnette and Gary Peacock. An inventive, inspired unit capable of heightened sensitivity and ferocious interplay, they exhibit remarkable empathy and dazzling virtuosity on Blinds & Shades (Intuition). As the trio’s principal composer, pianist Ross demonstrates a delicate touch on luminous pieces like “Ev’ry Now and Then (Pause and Think Again)” and “Grande Tristesse,” as well as on the gorgeous solo piano closer “Goodbye,” while his more forceful keyboard work, as on “Toss & Turn” and “Getting There (Is Half the Fun),” creates its own swinging, cascading momentum.
