A new audiophile album of original songs from pianist, composer, improviser Russ Lossing. Release date: October 5, 2020 on Aqua Piazza Records. CD/Download Russ Lossing composed two song cycles, 10 songs in all, based on the minimalistic poems of legendary Zen Masters Ryōkan Taigu and Dōgan Zenji, monks from the 18th & 13th Century, respectively. TRACES is comprised of two sets of five songs each that feature group improvisations woven throughout the carefully crafted songs. The music defies category, existing in a dream-world somewhere between contemporary classical music and modern jazz. “Chamber improvisation, song, poetry, sprechstimme and beautiful compositions. The musical empathy is obvious.” - Mark Helias 2020
