marc jufer trio

 

Swiss saxophonist Marc Jufer is a highly skilled well travelled improviser who has played his talents in a variety of music styles.


Trip to the center, Jufer’s latest recording on a QFTF label is the first time I’ve come across his music and I do like it. He is full of twists and turns and surprises as well as displaying an ability to make a melody very memorable.
 

He decided to omit the harmony instrument for the album, to focus on a pure trio sound, hurried by a new rhythmic pair of  German and New York bassist Lisa Hoppe and New York  rising star drummer Devin Gray.

They recorded " Trip to the Center " over a two day period and it didn’t take them long to find their center.

 

This tune " symétrique ascendant "  is full of fire and power.

 

There is no doubt that Marc Jufer is a force.
