Domenic Landorf - a wide-ranging instrumentalist - presents music of riveting beauty and a piano-less trio that plays with intimate intensity. Thirteen pieces that hold the listener spellbound. Magical moments appear out of thin air. Captivating moments with a quirky magic that enchants the listener and holds him spellbound. Besides the creative originals, there's a respectful short take on the standard ballad "My Old Flame."

Musician, composer, and conservatory professor Domenic Landorf was born in Bern, Switzerland in 1969. From 1988 to 1992 he studied at the Swiss Jazz School in Bern under the Swiss saxophonist Andy Scherrer. He also plays in Scherrer's sextet. Landorf is counted among the "Swiss jazz elite". Along with saxophone, he plays clarinet, bass clarinet, and flute. His debut CD as a leader on Pirouet, "Wanderlust," was released in 2003 and included Jean-Paul Brodbeck on piano and Fender-Rhodes, Fabian Gisler on bass, and Dominic Egli on drums. His second Pirouet CD, "New Brighton," in trio with bassist Patrice Moret and drummer Dejan Terzic, is now available. Domenic Landorf teaches saxophone at the Basel Music Academy. He has lived in Basel since 1995.
