ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The transition from sideman to artist is not an easy one to make, but if you are multi-instrumentalist John Calzavara, you do it with the grace of a seasoned professional. Calzavara's first album, Cosmic Wave, plays like a compilation of tunes from an artists's third or fourth effort. Working as a sideman and session player in Nashville for fifteen years, and moonlighting in the jazz scene on off hours, has honed John's skills in both musicianship and composition. "I wanted to explore composition in depth, and see where it would lead me." That exploration has led to the album Cosmic Wave, a conglomoration of several styles from jazz, Latin, rock, country and bluegrass. Put them all together and what do you have? Who knows, but it works! Calzavara produced and penned all ten tunes on the album and played many of the instruments. John also enlisted the talents of some of Nashville's finest musicians and engineers, and an old friend in Los Angeles. The talented team of professionals on this album gives the music a unique sound from the powerful title track Cosmic Wave to the ethereal Adam's Clay. This music takes you through a range of emotions and leaves you longing for more. An original blending of sounds, skilled playing and singable melodies makes you want to hear these songs again and again. We invite you to listen for yourself and to experience this new music in your own unique way.

“Noted Nashville studio and road sideman John Calzavara takes the well deserved spotlight on this CD which is inspired but not preachy. His songs transcend the boundaries of any particular faith and focus on what is common to us all.”
Ed Salamon: Country Radio Hall of Fame

“Melodic and hypnotic. You’ll want to hear it over and over again.”
Brady Seals: Little Texas, Hot Apple Pie

“Only from the genius musical mind of John Calzavara and his latest CD offering, Cosmic Wave, can you hear a little bit of banjo and dobro in jazz tunes you would listen to in your car on a crisp fall day driving down a winding road with the top down. The multi-instrumentalist sax man can go toe-to-toe with the likes of Dave Koz, Boney James, Candy Dulfer, Gerald Albright, Tom Scott, David Sanborn and Grover Washington, Jr. Catch John’s Cosmic Wave. You will want to ride it (and play it) over and over again!”
Lety Perez

“Great music! Very positive and refreshing like a morning cup of coffee. It is really life asserting, giving you optimism and energy to enjoy every moment of your life.”
Sveta Yatsky
