Jorge Rossy

Jorge Rossy is internationally recognised as one of the most influential drummers of his generation. His sideman work includes over 180 recordings with renowned jazz musicians such as Brad Mehldau, Ethan Iverson, Kevin Hays, Albert Sanz, Mark Turner, Chris Cheek, Seamus Blake, Joshua Redman, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jakob Bro, Enrico Pieranunzi and Steve Swallow, among many others. Jorge has also toured with some jazz greats including Charlie Haden, Wayne Shorter, Lee Konitz, Carla Bley, and Joe Lovano.

Besides his work as a drummer, Jorge has a distinctive voice on the vibes, marimba and piano, and a unique sound as a composer and band leader. Since his first CD under his own name, Jorge Rossy Trio Wicca (Fresh Sound), recorded in 2006, Jorge has recorded over 30 albums as a band leader or co-leader, to critical acclaim from publications such as Jazz Times, Downbeat, Jazz Around, and All About Jazz.

In 2015, Jorge recorded Stay There (Pirouet), his debut recording as a vibes and marimba player, leading a truly stellar band. Since then, Jorge has toured and recorded with different configurations of his band the Jordi Rossy Vibes Quintet and several co-led projects, including Passport Quartet, Rossy & Kanan Quartet, Beck/Landolf/Rossy, Fox + Chris Cheek and Rossy & Vercher Quintet «Filantropía», among others. His second vibes quintet album Beyond Sunday (Jazz&People) came out in 2018 and his first vibes trio album, Puerta, will be released on ECM in November 2021.

All the bands that Jorge has led or co-led since 2015 are made up of outstanding musicians, collaborating to create a distinctive sound and an aesthetic full of intimate complicity. The long list of his bandmates includes Jeff Ballard, Robert Landfermann, Joe Chambers, Al Foster, Jimmy Wormworth, Joey Baron, Adam Cruz, Billy Hart, Mark Turner, Joshua Redman, Domenic Landolf, Pietro Tonolo, Javier Vercher, Chris Cheek, Mike Kanan, Kevin Hays, Michael Beck, Doug Weiss, Putter Smith, Nico Moreaux, Masa Kamaguchi, Marc Abrams, Pete Bernstein, Jaume Llombart, Pierre Perchaud and Vincent Peirani.
