about

Since the passing of Paul Motian, several tributes have been released that reexamine the iconic drummer’s contributions as a composer. None are more heartfelt and moving than Russ Lossing’s remarkable solo-piano tribute to the late, great Motian. A frequent collaborator over the past 12 years, Lossing understands Motian’s music from the inside out. His renditions of “Conception Vessel” and “Olivia’s Dream” are breathtaking in their clarity and beauty, and his two-fisted takes on “Fiasco,” “Dance” and “Drum Music” capture the great drummer’s unpredictable and audacious rhythmic pulse. Lossing’s stark re-imaginings of such exquisite Motian staples as “Mumbo Jumbo,” “Last Call,” “In Remembrance of Things Past” and the melancholy “It Should’ve Happened a Long Time Ago” all vibrate with a new spirit of exploration. Just as Paul would’ve wanted it.
-Bill Milkowski- Jazz Times

"Lossing is the expert like no one else to explore in depth the unconventional and inspiring genius of Motian the composer. "Drum Music" is a stunning improvisational solo recital, a convincing plunge into 10 Motian compositions. This is music in between contemporary jazz and up to date tonal concert music."
-(JS)Der Sonntag


“Drum Music” has a disciplined rigorous, highly intellectual sound that is played out in a perfectly relaxed organic way. It’s a great testament of Motian the composer, a wonderful solo piano record in any context, and a fitting tribute to one of jazz’s greatest artists.
