ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bassist CHRIS COLANGELO is one of the genuine masters on his instrument. The first thing you notice about Chris's playing -- his tone, deeply resonant with astonishing articulation across the instrument's sonic register. Once you adjust to such reverberant force, you recognize that this is a musician with serious chops ... that hard to define, never forgotten lyric quality that separates yeoman time-keepers from bassists with seductive narrative power.

Born in Camden, New Jersey, Chris attended Rowan University, majoring in jazz performance. Then a resident of the Philadelphia area, Chris was part of the local jazz scene, with session work throughout the Delaware Valley, including gigs in Atlantic City. After moving to Los Angeles in late '91, Chris began performing and traveling with heavyweights such as the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, Yusef Lateef, Jimmy Cleveland, Alex Acuna, Roy McCurdy, Doc Severinsen, Ernie Watts, Kei Akagi, Les McCann, Richie Cole, and Sal Marquez among many others.

Chris's album, 2 trios + 1 -- "Live" (BluePort Jazz), earned plaudits at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas soon after its appearance in nationwide distribution. Legendary pianist Jane Getz joined Chris for this "in concert" recording, along with percussionist Dave Hocker and saxophonist Chuck Manning.

Jazz reviewer John Gilbert wrote about that session, "live at Monteleone's in Los Angeles, [where] Colangelo assembled an all star cast, " that

"... the listener will understand why [Chris] is much in demand upon hearing him in action. His assertive approach and rapid fire solos take bass playing to another level...power tempered with feeling is a most sought after attribute and Colangelo achieves this with a natural ability grounded in musical education."
