Antunes, George & Guedin: Mayb
Format: COMPACT DISC
Fussyduck is not only characterized by an unusual name and an unusual cast, but also by the international origin of the band members. Alto saxophonist Guillaume Guedin, violinist Robin Antunes and drummer Baptiste Dolt come from Paris, pianist Leandro Irarragorri grew up as the son of a Cuban father in Zurich, the young bassist Daisy George comes from London and trombonist Florian Weiss lives in Bern, where he plays in the quartet Woodooism, among others. “We all attended a workshop held as a cooperation of jazz schools in Tuscany as part of our studies,” Weiss said about the summer five years previously. "It was about networking, getting to know each other and of course playing music with each other. It worked out well with us both in terms of music and on a personal level, and we decided to form a band as a result.” After a few concerts, Fussyduck quickly attracted international attention and won the renowned Bejazz Transnational Prize in Bern in the spring of 2019. Soon after, they recorded their debut album "Maybe That's All We Get" in Loft in Cologne, which is now being released.
