Massimo Biolcati – Persona


For several years, bassist Massimo Biolcati has provided strong support for a variety of acclaimed jazz artists, including Terence Blanchard, Lizz Wright, Ravi Coltrane, Paquito D’Rivera, and Lionel Loueke. Now, with the release of Persona on ObliqSound, Biolcati takes a giant stride into the spotlight as a leader. The album is titled in homage to the classic Ingmar Bergman film, and thematically structured in two sections to reflect the film’s concept of duality. Persona is a dual portrait of Biolcati’ s strengths as performer and composer.

Personnel: Massimo Biolcati (bass); Jeff Ballard (drums); Lionel Loueke (guitar, vocals); Peter Rende (piano, vocals); Lizz Wright (vocals, track 6); Gretchen Parlato (vocals, track 8).

    I reposted twinkeluv’s comment above in the previous Abbey Lincoln album where it was meant to go…

    The name and sound of Gretchen Parlato is a good one in new jazz vocalists… But haven’t heard Massimo. Now will thanks to you.

    I’ll add too, that you, Rappamelo person, are a blogger/lover of jazz and fine music of all types… you are of the first order, if not one of the greatest. You have brought together tastes of all things good, and like the owner or matre ‘d… just sayin’ .. many thanks for all the work and gathering to make a feast for the ears of the world of us… who are in your gratitude as we dig the sounds of creativity.
