Such mesmerizing music has been filling my grateful ears recently - notably from composer/pianist Romain Collin.
Born in France, Roman came to the States because he had a scholarship to Berklee. That was his first, by the way - he received another to the Monk Institute. Both schools afforded him the opportunity to learn from and work with the BEST in Jazz - and many of those recognized the best in Romain.
It's pretty amazing when an artist from another country gets to study with Ron Carter, Mulgrew Miller and Wynton Marsalis. Then to tour with mentors Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock? Nobody who plays reasonably well has that green light - only the cream of the crop.
Besides having scored two short films, co-produced bassist Tony Gray's project, "Moving" and contributed to the highly praised Weather Report CD tribute in 2005, Roman performs with artists in an array of genres. And he has found time to perfect two albums of note. His debut in 2009, "The Rise and Fall of Pipokuhn", was met with critical acclaim. In the Summer of 2012, "The Calling" was released. And Romain has been riding the tidal wave of those accolades since then.
He will join us on Tuesday, March 26th, at the top of the show - at one p.m. Eastern time. Look forward to some magnificent music from Romain - as well as our focus on Spring. It's here...let it speak to you through song :)
