      Description hide

      Florian Ross, born 1972 and based in Cologne, Germany, is a musical explorer. His recordings (this is the 18th since 1998) focus on the multifaceted jazz tradition and his extraordinary handling of contemporary material. In all formations, from trio, quintet, string orchestra to brass ensemble, Ross succeeds in reconciling two seemingly different musical forms: improvised and composed. While many of his European colleagues consider it a virtue to distance themselves from the mainstream, another camp makes an effort to continue the American jazz tradition in Europe as authentically as possible - Ross’ music is a refreshing break from an often embarrassing programmatic context. With his third album in the Quintet format, Ross focuses on the beautiful voice of Kristin Berardi. Especially composed vocal music with lyrics from the late 19th century make up an eclectic mix of melancholia and sheer beauty.
