Frank Giasullo Frank Giasullo

The Frank Giasullo Quartet has created a distinctive sound, enhanced by its strong repertoire of original compositions by Frank Giasullo. Giasullo is a classically trained jazz player but his piano playing and the music he writes comes as much out of his feeling for gospel, folk, and blues as his classical and jazz background. These influences give his music a rare naturalness and ease with which listeners instantly identify, yet it also possesses emotional and musical layers that offer new delights long after the first hearing. In other words, Frank Giasullo is one of those expressive jazz musicians who uses what he knows to say what he feels.

Frank Giasullo Quartet combines thoughtful, accomplished playing with a laid-back groove and sensitive ensemble work. From cool blue to warm and lush, the FGQ eloquently reflect a breadth of feeling only possible in an acoustic jazz quartet of this quality.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
