Album Notes
It's a rich and varied tradition in which Lossing and Hebert locate themselves, and their duets are both an incidental celebration of the tradition and a commemoration of their working partnership. John Hebert remarks of these duos, «This was a project that we put together as a document of years of playing together in various ensembles. I have known and played with Russ for just about 10 years now, and there aren't too many musicians that I have such a unique bond with.» Russ Lossing adds, «John and I have developed a very close musical kinship, and friendship too. So, finally we recorded the duo after years of talking about it.» The relationship is apparent in all the ways Lossing and Hebert find to both interact and prod one another here, and the special ways they find to contrast their instrumental voices, from the fleet evenness of Lossing’s piano to the gritty expressiveness of Hebert’s bass. — Stuart Broomer

New york based jazz pianist, composer and recording artist Russ Lossing is known worldwide for his highly personal and unique improvising voice. Lossing has composed over 400 works and has an international reputation as a world class improviser. Lossing has nine releases as leader on Hat Hut, Clean Feed, Fresh Sound, Double Time and OmniTone record labels. His critically acclaimed new solo piano release “All Things Arise” on Hat Hut Records “bridges the worlds of jazz and new music, the pieces feeling as if they arise out of the primal silence of the universe. Even the ‘standards’ feel as if they’re emerging newly formed from a magnificent world of thought and impulse.” Lossing’s Fresh Sound release,’Phrase 6’ has quickly become a cult classic among musicians and his new cd ‘Line Up’, a duo with bassist john hébert, has been hailed a ‘tour de force’.

“…The pianist illuminates the silence, suspends the time, and intensifies the collective flux. The wealth of his harmonic knowledge, the fluidity of his phrasing and his attention to the weight of every single note creates a sound palette for endless pleasures.”
