Sebastien Ammann - Early Enough To Be Late (SKIRL RECORDS 2017)

Featuring Michaël Attias (Paul Motian, Anthony Braxton), Noah Garabedian (Ravi Coltrane, Ralph Alessi) and Nathan Ellman-Bell (Michael Formanek, Uri Caine), this new record features ten of Sebastien Ammann’s original compositions, striking a balance between knotty constructions and bracing free improvisations, between minutely plotted, deftly interwoven composition and pure chance. The Swiss-born pianist cites influences ranging from Jimmy Giuffre and Paul Motian to Schoenberg and John Cage, which combine in compellingly original ways throughout Color Wheel.
