About John Colianni’s New Album “Ahead Of The Crowd”
Hailed by The New York Times as “the essence of a swinging pianist,” and by Duke Ellington’s bassist Jimmy Woode as “a brilliant pianist, composer and arranger with exquisite taste,” John Colianni returns for his fifth outing on the Patuxent label with “Ahead Of The Crowd”. This album features John in a Trio setting, and with support from Boots Maleson (bass) and Bernard Linnette (drums), you’re guaranteed plenty of alert, swinging momentum at every turn.
Renowned for his work as accompanist for Mel Tormé and Les Paul among others, the John Colianni trio is one of this artist’s more frequent perfomance vehicles. On this new release, you’ll hear a varied mixture of Jazz classics, standards, exciting Colianni originals, and Blues (plus a pair of pop/R&B pieces receiving the Colianni trio’s distinctive touch). Check back for more details as the release date gets close! This trio is truly “Ahead Of The Crowd!”
