Jazz pianist Massimo Colombo releases unique tribute album ‘We All Love Burt Bacharach’ with the help of major musicians

Massimo Colombo, one of the greatest jazz pianist to come out of Europe, is set to release an entirely unique Burt Bacharach tribute album titled ‘We All Love Burt Bacharach’. The album features major names such as the drummer from Weather Reporter Peter Erskine, member of the Yellowjackets Bob Mintzer and refined folk singer Kathleen Grace. The huge range of talented musicians involved has led to an album with a unique sound, blending folk, pop, funk and jazz.

The album has been conceived and produced by Giampaolo Pasquile and Michele Garruti for PLAY (Milan) and Oracle Records ltd (London).  These producers took inspiration from artists such as Micheal Buble and Chet Baker, escaping from that cliche jazz style.

Alternative instrumental jazz outfit BadBadNotGood have gone down a funkier route with this new sleek single ‘Speaking Gently’. It gradually builds into saxophones and guitars, the trio continuing to showcase the same sparkling synergy as always.

The Canadian group yet again seem to be heading in an exciting new direction, a imminent album IV in the pipeline.
