The Compass: Live at Pianoforte

Featuring the music of Markus Rutz
Duration: 10:00

This live performance take of my original tune "the Compass" is from the first volume of my Blueprints album Figure One: Frameworks. It is a composition dedicated to my mother Lois Jo. The album version also features saxophonist Brice Winston who plays an emotive and energetic tenor saxophone solo immediately followed by the mysterious, searching style of Matt Gold’s guitar that develops into a groove.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
