Gerry Hemingway

A new album of piano/drum duets. An audiophile recording.

Release date: May 7, 2021 on Aqua Piazza Records.  

For connoisseurs of fully improvised music.

A fascinating journey into imaginary soundscapes by two masterful improvisers.

A strange and magical trek that begins in the blended realm of extended percussion and inside-the-piano techniques, gradually separating into a full-blown piano and drum dialogue.

Aqua Piazza Records

"The introspective and intriguing release consists entirely of originals which are at times mesmerizingly dark and, at others, warmly vibrant. The music is sublimely balanced between the emotive and the cerebral. " - All About Jazz


Russ Lossing, piano

John Hébert, bass

Michael Sarin, drums

"The transportive music of Russ Lossing, John Hébert, and Michael Sarin sounds contemporary and familiar all at once. Their focus on taking age old, effective musical devices and then incorporating modern improvisatory techniques with them, constructing music of true communicatory depth, is truly astounding and perfectly encapsulated on their new recording, Folks.
