The highlight for March 2013 will certainly be the first ECM Records release for Third Reel, a collective trio involving Roberto Pianca on guitar, Emanuele Maniscalco on drums and Nicolas Masson on saxophone and clarinet. Check out the ECM Player for more info and an excerpt from the album.
The official release party will be held at the AMR Jazz Festival in Geneva on March 21st, we're looking forward to see you there!
Nicolas Masson dived into improvised music at the deep end, at 20 encountering Cecil Taylor and J.R. Mitchell in New York and subsequently studying with Frank Lowe and Makanda Ken McIntyre.
A leading figure on the Swiss new jazz scene, Masson has worked with a broad international cast of musicians including Ben Monder, Gerald Cleaver, Kenny Wheeler, Kris Davis, Eivind Opsvik, Russ Lossing, Colin Vallon, Tom Arthurs and many more.
