Félix Stüssi Félix Stüssi

Be it on a bicycle or behind the keys, Félix Stüssi loves adventure and fresh wind. Since his move from Switzerland to Canada, Stüssi has turned his back on journalism, jazz piano and composition are now his main focus. In 2007, his quintet wins the prestigious Grand Prix of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal. A year later US-trombonist Ray Anderson joins the project and the band becomes a sextet. The four albums of the group are very well received on both sides of the Atlantic, they are nominated for several prices. The band tours through Canada (2009) and Europe (2005, 2011 and 2015, the latter in duo with Ray Anderson). Stüssi has also formed LES MALCOMMODES, a very dynamic trio with Daniel Lessard on bass and Pierre Tanguay on drums. LES MALCOMMDOES have presented their eponymous album (Effendi Records, 2012, FND 123) in Europe during a tour in spring 2014. The brand-new project LES MALCOMMODES invitent Sonia Johnson, Ray Anderson, Jean Derome, André Leroux & Jacques Kuba Séguin (Effendi Records, FND 147) is Stüssi’s most ambitious and audacious endeavour so far. Félix Stüssi returns regularly to Europe, where he has played among others with Bruno Spoerri, Nils Wogram, Jürg Wickihalder, Ruedi Wettstein, Co Streiff, Christoph Grab, Christy Doran, Daniel Schläppi and Peter A. Schmid. Schmid and Stüssi have recorded a duo CD, which has been released on Unit Records in January 2017 (Transatlantic Conversations, UTR 4738)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
