Florian Ross Quintet - Seasons and Places

...a bright new German quintet...

...German pianist, composer and bandleader Florian Ross was 25 years old when he recorded his impressive Seasons and Places album in 1998. Ross never overplays or indulges in rhetoric, and he's a most subtle and effective band pianist. He is admired by pianists John Taylor and Jim McNeely, both of whom express their admiration at some length in the album's booklet notes. Ross's quintet brings together some of the most creative younger German musicians who perform his highly sophisticated compositions with aplomb. In his pieces he achieves a sense of organic development, which yet includes many surprising twists and turns, and always projects emotion eloquent of the human condition. All ten pieces are by Ross and each has its own identity. 'Blues' is a 32-bar piece, its backbone a haunting and melodic repeated two-bar piano figure over which the equally evocative melody is played by high saxophone and trombone in unison. The fast 'Let Me Do It (Not You)' has the ensemble 'calling' and the piano responding, and the gloriously sonorous ballad, 'Winteraire', dedicated to John Taylor, begins and ends with solo bass, and has trombone and saxophone playing the exquisitely lyrical theme in harmony and counterpoint...
