Russ Lossing - John Hebert : Line Up on Hatology 651
Russ Lossing -piano & John Hebert -double bass
Total Time DDD 55:43



It's a rich and varied tradition in which Lossing and Hebert locate themselves, and their duets are both an incidental celebration of the tradition and a commemoration of their working partnership. John Hebert remarks of these duos, “This was a project that we put together as a document of years of playing together in various ensembles. I have known and played with Russ for just about 10 years now, and there aren't too many musicians that I have such a unique bond with."

Russ Lossing adds, “John and I have developed a very close musical kinship, and friendship too. So, finally we recorded the duo after years of talking about it." The relationship is apparent in all the ways Lossing and Hebert find to both interact and prod one another here, and the special ways they find to contrast their instrumental voices, from the fleet evenness of Lossing's piano to the gritty expressiveness of Hebert's bass. --Stuart Broomer
