Hocus Pocus: Book H of “Practitioners,” is a series of etudes by Steve Lacy. Each etude contains several knotty melodies, intended by Lacy to be difficult to play, and meant to stretch the player past his or her comfort zone.

Russ Lossing







Russ Lossing, piano, compositions
Ralph Alessi, trumpet
Mark Helias, bass

Mark Helias is a renowned bassist and composer who has performed throughout the world for more than three decades. “Mark Helias is one of the finest acoustic bass players in the contemporary jazz avant-garde, a guy who can play inside as well as out and who stretches the boundaries in both directions.”

A strong proponent of the avant-garde jazz scene, Jazz Times magazine says Alessi has “drop-dead trumpet chops” and calls his music ” clean and airy and sophisticated…

Lossing’s brief but intense study with John Cage in the early ’80s and his more recent 12 year association with Paul Motian continue to inform his music at present. Stylistically, Lossing is, simply, a “space man”—like Thelonious Monk and Paul Bley, letting the spaces be-tween notes do the talking. -ICON Magazine
