With nonchalant ease, the jazz quintet ROOFER, founded by the Swiss double-bass player and composer Luca Sisera, performs a balancing act between the avant-garde and an awareness of tradition. The band has impressively demonstrated this in their albums "Prospect" (2015, Leo Records) and "Moscow Files" (2017, Leo Records).
The multitude of concerts has caused the band's language to be greatly enhanced once again, while the collective's cosmos of sound has broadened wonderfully. This is precisely where the thread for the new album is taken up. As always, intricate rhythms, fast-paced parts in unison, latent swing fantasies and anthemic soundscapes serve these five renowned jazz musicians as an improvisational plateau on which to play.
“...you can never be exactly sure where the tunes are headed, but you can trust this unit to make the process a hell of a lot of fun. Unpredictable right up to the end!”

"Capping off the “Swiss Night” was Luca Sisera ROOFER, who impressed with adventurous variations on the theme of Mingus-like aesthetics."
