Ross, Florian

Ross, Florian: Mechanism (Pirouet)
Label: Pirouet    
Released in: Germany    

"Florian Ross is not just a pianist; he is also a composer and a shaper of sounds. As such he has made a name for himself throughout Europe over the last decade. His creativity and virtuosity has earned Ross, who was born in Pforzheim, Germany in 1972, numerous honours, including first prize at the Danish Radio Big Band's Thad Jones competition, and in 2006 he received the WDR's (West German Radio) jazz prize for composition. Germany's Goethe Institute sent him as exemplary cultural export to Asia, South Africa, and Central America. And he teaches at renowned music conservatories in six German cities. Florian Ross is a masterful arranger, as he has a deep understanding of how to combine the various instruments into unusually sophisticated voicings. Whether for the Vancouver Jazz Orchestra, the BMI Jazz Orchestra, or the Metropole Orkest, when it is about transforming large bodies of sound into lean polychromatic music, then Florian Ross is the one to call. This is his first CD as solo pianist and his first recording on Pirouet Records."-Pirouet Records
