    Lays Taylor began his career in music in the 1990s; moving from his native Switzerland to work as a popular and versatile session musician in Berlin.







    Back then he was known as Lars Rüetschi and he was kept busy in the studio – playing on many hits with popular artists of the day, and as a live performer – until around 2009.







    Following a break of a few years he returned to writing and recording music in his home studio, based in a quiet Swiss village well away from the frantic life of a big city.







    Although he prefers not to be placed in any music genre, his two most recent releases are popular with fans of smooth jazz.







    Sweet Onion was released in 2019 and is still regularly played by broadcasters, and his latest single Keep it Going is gaining in popularity every day. Both tracks involved iconic producer Paul Brown in post production.

    Interview with Markus Rutz, jazz trumpet player

    Interview with Markus Rutz, jazz trumpet player

    I got to interview Chicago-based jazz musician Markus Rutz (pronounced roots) for my Cool Nights jazz radio show in April 2020.







    I cut the interview (recorded via Skype) with some tracks from Markus' new album and the package has been broadcast by at least 70 stations world-wide.







    Intro:







    Chicago jazz musician Markus Rutz [pronounced 'roots'] has just released his third album called “Blueprints Figure One: Frameworks”.







    The jazz trumpeter, who admits to being heavily influenced by Miles Davis, spends his time teaching the trumpet, composing his own melodies, performing, and recording his music.







    Here, Markus talks to Steve Hart about his journey from nine-year-old wannabe musician to popular recording artist.

    Outro:







    That's the sound of trumpet player and composer Markus Rutz (roots) who was talking to Steve Hart. Markus' latest album is called “Blueprints Figure One: Frameworks”.
