Recorded and Released in 2004, Phrase 6 is an uncompromising and highly sophisticated statement from master pianist, composer and improviser Russ Lossing.
"...an iconoclast in the best sense of the word, a true innovator."
- All About Jazz

"The thrills on Phrase 6 derive from the riddles Lossing constructs for his partners. The trio navigates tricky forms with dense chords, daring bass arpeggios and sharp rhythmic patterns, and each musician is presented with a series of choices. Whether they join up with or harmonize around each other at any given moment demands quick decisions and sidemen able to make them—and here, Lossing has it all."
