Description

After two ECM albums with the cooperative trio Third Reel, Swiss reedman Nicolas Masson presents a quartet on 'Travelers' for which he is the sole composer.

The group has existed for a decade with unchanged personnel, touring as Nicolas Masson's Parallels, and the leader's writing for it always encourages creative responses from the players. Amid the changing musical landscapes in which these travellers move, you will encounter some of Colin Vallon's prettiest ballad playing, richly melodic bass from Patrice Moret, and subtle drum commentary from Lionel Friedli. Plus, of course, plenty of Masson's pure-toned saxophone and elegant clarinet.

'Travelers' was recorded at Auditorio Stelio Molo in Lugano in April 2017, and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Personnel: Nicolas Masson (tenor & soprano saxophones, clarinet), Colin Vallon (piano), Patrice Moret (double bass), Lionel Friedli (drums)
