Russ Lossing

Penetrate the world of modern jazz, improvisation and composition today and you will find one of its most stimulating and innovative artists. Russ Lossing is drawing attention for his unique vision, deep integrity, and thoughtfully humanistic voice. He is known for his examining musicality. Lossing is a provocative and fresh leader in creating alternatives to long held conceptions in music. His individual voice, as a player and composer, is sought out as an authority in the jazz and avant-garde fields emerging in music today.

Participation in Lossing's work is an elegant conversation: a counter point involving listener, musician and composer equally. Possessing an inherent sense of form, he presents opportunities for the structured elements of music to become creative. 'Allowing for the moment', is to participate with Russ's core beliefs in the improvisational nature of music. To engage in a piece with Russ Lossing is a paradox in the gentlest respect. Strict notation transforms to, and blends with, open improvisation within an involving individualism: creation of variance within, and without, structure.
