Lundgren, Rossy, Weiss

Gustav Lundgren - Guitar
Jorge Rossy - Drums
Doug Weiss - Bass

The idea for this project was hatched in 2012 when the Swedish guitarist Gustav Lundgren (known from earlier collaborations with Anne Sofie von Otter, Chris Cheek, Jimmy Rosenberg & Swedish House Mafia) and the Spanish drummer Jorge Rossy (known from the Brad Mehldau Trio, Wayne Shorter Quartet , Charlie Haden, Chick Corea Trio, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Joshua Redman) started talking about doing a trio album together. Lundgren & Rossy has played together in various constellations since 2009. Lundgren previously lived in Madrid but after the move back to Stockholm he bought an apartment in Catalonia in the immediate vicinity of the village where Rossy lives and has his studio. Jorge Rossy previously lived and worked in New York, but after moving back to Catalonia he continued his cooperation with American musicians. In May 2016 he did a European tour with his quintet containing exclusively American musicians, he then wanted to take the opportunity to make a trio recording with Lundgren & the quintet ́s double bass player Doug Weiss. Weiss has since 1980 been one of New York's most establishment jazz bassists and works with John Scofield, Brian Blade, Al Foster, Kevin Hays and Bill Stewart.

Since 2012 this Trio has released 3 albums (Jazz vol 1. Jazz vol 2. Live at Fasching) on Lundgren Music.
