Jazz with other perspectives…
...these words reflect best the music from FranceletMoser Trio. Finest arrangements, cheeky interplay's inspiring improvisations are a few of the many features this trio.
The most important for the two main composers and performers Arnaud Francelet (bass) and Markus Moser (guitar), however, is to reproduce strong sentiments, and receive its power without compromise. The young and already very popular drummer and percussionist Markus Ostfeld from Germany is the perfect match for the trio..The first cd ’essence’ from 2009 and the 2nd album ‘orange mood’ from 2012 had a very successful press.
In 2015 they record their 3rd Album ‘Indigo’ and had an international tour inlcuding Europe, Japan, China, Thailand, Laos. The album ‘Indigo’ shows at a high level and with an impressive way, that not all horizons are explored in the broad heaven of Jazz.
