Dominik Fuss (B.A. B.A.)
is an european trumpeter, composer & improvisor.
Born into a musical family, aged 7 he found out that he wants to be a trumpet player, after investing his lunch money for a whole school camp week, into a 10 CD-collection of Louis Armstrong.
He studied in several universities (Vienna, Cologne, Graz...) and graduated with honors in jazz- trumpet & classical trumpet (-education).
After his graduation he won the first prize for trumpet at the International Jazzsolist-Award "MasterJam Fest" in Odessa Ukraine, alongside other prize winners like Joey Alexander (US), Yissy Garcia (Cuba) & others.
In the recent years he played around the globe, released his europewide acclaimed debut-Album "Ethology" (2016/ Dominik Fuss' Rumpus) and initiated and leaded large ensembles like the Spittelberg JazzOrchestra, an young all-star big band playing new vienesse composers and their music.
A bit later he started the family band Affair Dreyfuss (Affäre Dreyfuss): a band containing three members of one family (fuss), playing originals and arrangements from the bop-era and beyond. They released the album "In Good Company" last year (2018) in june.
His newest project is the Duo Fuss/Leichtfried. Together they explore the borders between jazz tradition, classical and modern music, and played already all around the world together: Vietnam, Malaysia, Tunisia & Montenegro
"Fuss and Leichtfried approach the freedom that the duo presents with courage in the use of space." (Xavier Plus - Austrian Broadcasting Corporation, ORF)
