Save the date!
Samuel Blaser and his trio will give a rare New York performance at the Roulette. Blaser’s grounding in jazz and classical music produces tunes which develop seamlessly through wonderful interaction between the trio members. French guitarist Marc Ducret (known for his work with Tim Berne) and Danish drummer Peter Bruun (also a member of Django Bates Beloved band) complete the international line-up. The trio released a new album on legendary Swiss label HatArt to coincide with the performance.
The Samuel Blaser Trio was founded after a downtime poolside dialogue between Samuel Blaser and Marc Ducret in Cabo Frio, Brazil. Danish drummer Peter Bruun seemed like a felicitous fit, and beginning with an inaugural gig in May of 2013 at the Jazzdor Festival in Berlin, the three players began extensive tours of Europe, Asia and South America. Blaser estimates roughly 120 concerts over the ensuing years, no meager feat considering the band had yet to cut a commercial recording....
Look for the following at the show.
