The Swiss trio 60 Miles did not take its name from a decade surely very rich in jazz, neither from a certain trumpeter with an emblematic silhouette among others. But it’s certainly JAZZ that 60 Miles proposes. In our day, does jazz still exist that refers only to itself and is nourished only by its own tradition?
60 Miles chooses to create its own music, inspired as much by Parker, Jarrett or Cohen as Led Zeppelin, Radiohead or Beethoven. A music formed in the great tradition of the trio, but without the usual codes. A music where the rhythmic games take the principal place, between the fascination of the numeric abstraction and the enjoyable celebration of the ambiguity.
After publishing their first album《ou à Raison》 (Altri Suoni / 2015)，60 Miles played in Switzerland, France, Germany, China (Beijing / Dalian / Xiamen / Changsha / Shenzhen / Guangzhou) and South America (Brazil / Argentina). At the moment the trio is presenting the new record,《Last Summer》2018.
