Fusion, Funk, Jazz or R&B
- Gianni Luescher has long proved his flexible bass-feeling in various international top
formations – and the groove goes on...!
Gianni Luescher acquired the basics at the Jazz school in Lucerne, Switzerland, and
achieved a “Graduate with honors” from the “Bass Institute of Technology” in Los Angeles
attending the courses of Gary Willis, Steve Bailey, Bob Magnusson and Carl Schroeder.
Whether four strings, five strings or fretless – Gianni Luescher has never been
satisfied with just clean basslines. He feels the most at ease as a “groovemaker” and
“soloist” when it comes to stretching the limits of his instrument. Playing together with
such outstanding musicians as Dave Doran, Joseph Bowie, Jean Paul Bourelly or
John Voirol offers him an ideal and highly estimated multicultural platform, where he
simultaneously exhausts and extends his abilities…
Beside the tours, club-gigs and studio-work, Gianni Luescher works, thanks to a
diploma at the HMT Zürich, also as a qualified bass-instructor. Last but not least he
contributes in his role as an endorser to the development of the prestigious acclaimed
bass-models of Christof Kost (Aachen, Germany).
Living for and with the bass – Gianni Luescher does not make compromises.
