ABOUT

Simon Spiess could through his talent already with 15 years of age share the stage with Randy Brecker, Donny McCaslin, Greg Tardy, Michael Backer a.m. (Jazzaar Concerts Aarau) and with 17 begin his studies at Musikhochschule Basel, from where he graduated as Master of Arts in Musikpädagogik. The musician was four times awarded with prizes for his tireless work in various projects and thereby lived in Paris and Berlin (Rentsch 2011, Kt. Solothurn in 2012 and Kt. Aargau 2014). Simon Spiess is a very sensitive and open musician and composer, and through his work as a bandleader and sideman, he has made himself a name in the Swiss scene, which steadily extends around the world.


QUOTES


„With a beautiful set of original tunes, Simon Spiess, Bänz Oester and Jonas Ruther keep expanding the boundaries of the sax-, bass- & drums-trio. Imagination lyricism and beauty of sound are overflowing in each one of this gems. Get ready for a really fun and inspiring listening session!“
- Jorge Rossi

"Grösstes Hörvergnügen garantiert die neuste CD des Simon Spiess Trios: Die rundum gelungene Produktion besticht durch stimmungsvolle Kompositionen und eine bestens eingespielte Band. Die Drei grooven, was das Zeug hält, überzeugen aber zur Abwechslung auch als Klangmaler, so dass während der 50 Minuten Musik nie auch nur ein Hauch von Langeweile aufkommt."
- Domenic Landolf

“Simon’s personal sound pushes the music into an interesting place!”
- Óskar Guðjónsson


"Stardane is a well thought out eclectic CD; featuring sensitive group interplay, lyrical improvisations, and a vast array of styles and influences. Supported by a superb band, saxophonist Simon Spiess delivers a patient and commanding performance with a lush sound; whether on tenor or alto."
- Greg Tardy

"Stardance brings the listener an evocative and lyrical, rhythmically engaging collection of sound stories. The Simon Spiess trio are all players with nimble, skilled touch on their instruments who deliver a tasteful and convincing performance. The music here has an energetic often hypnotic atmosphere, quiet and graceful one moment, fiery and challenging the next. The improvisations are adventurous and the grooves are dynamic. A wide sonic palette, a nice mix of textures along with the great sound each person gets on the instrument makes Stardance a real pleasure to hear."
- Chris Cheek

"The Simon Spiess Trio invites the listener in with strong melodies, carefully attended by bandleader. One is met with a clear feeling of dedication and attention to every detail as the trio floats on a lively grid of the dusty sounding rythmsection. A beautiful broad sounding album that shows great promise for the future of this young Swiss/German trio."
- Mikkel Ploug

„Simon Spiess ist ein wahres Saxophonwunder. Er hat einen grossen Sound und eine absolut fesselnde erzählerische Gestaltungskraft, wie sie auch ein Dewey Redman besass. Dies ist heutzutage eine Seltenheit und damit wird er zu einer der wichtigen Figuren, welche die Essenz des Jazz in seiner ganzen Tiefe hörbar machen.“
- Harald Haerter

"Round 4! is a beautiful, lyrical recording from Simon Speiss Trio. Simon has an abundance of emotional depth in his playing and has presented a compelling collection of songs that highlight his lyricism and expression. A wonderful record."
- Donny McCaslin
