George Colligan Trio (USA/A)

George Colligan: piano
Michael Janisch: bass
Klemens Marktl: drums

Whirlwind is pleased to announce the signing of world-renowned pianist and composer George Colligan, not only one of the great jazz pianists of his generation, but an artist who has earned an international reputation as a multi-instrumentalist (drums, trumpet, organ, keyboards), composer, accompanist, teacher, and bandleader. The winner of the 2015 DownBeat Magazine Critics Poll (Keyboard), he has had a long association as a member of the legendary Jack DeJohnette’s ensemble. With over 130 albums to date as an accompanist, Colligan has worked with a long list of luminaries, including Buster Williams, Cassandra Wilson, Don Byron, Ravi Coltrane, and many others. His forthcoming album for Whirlwind More Powerful Than You Can Possibly Imagine is his 28th album as a leader. (Pressetext)

Zum letzten Mal war der Meisterpianist hierzuorts in der Band von Jack DeJohnette zu hören. Bevor Colligan, der übrigens kürzlich mit "Risky Notion" eine CD als Schlagzeuger veröffentlicht hat, in der Band der Bass-Legende Buster Williams zu erleben sein wird, präsentiert er seine eben erst auf Whirlwind Recordings erschienene Einspielung "More Powerful" – live mit dem österreichischen Schlagzeuger Klemens Marktl. Welcome to the Club! CH
