Lossing, Russ Trio

Lossing, Russ Trio: Oracle (hatOLOGY)
Label: hatOLOGY    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Russ Lossing continues to collaborate and create at a voracious pace... Though this disc marks a recording debut, this particular trio has been active for the past six years, operating out of the musical hotbed that exists around a handful of cross-pollinating venues in Brooklyn, New York. As Lossing describes it: "That's where we developed our particular language as an ensemble in terms of the interdependence, functionality, and expressiveness of each individual within the whole. Each sacrifices something for the sound of the trio and in so doing nothing is lost from the one"... Testament to the trio's shared fortitude, spontaneity also supplanted premeditation in the studio. Lossing pulled selections from a stack of pieces they had been working up and allowed the compass of collective experience to take over. The date was recorded without isolation or headphones in an intimate studio space. No second takes were necessary."-Derek Taylor, from the liner notes
