Album Description

What happens when five kindred musicians enter a Brooklyn studio armed with nothing but their instruments, some original pieces and a willingness to see and hear what happens? That’s the operating principle behind “Leave It Blank For Now,” a collective of improvisers who share a history of study in Boston, now rooted in the vibrant New York City scene and involved in enough bands and projects to make your head spin. The album starts out with two of saxophonist Daniele Germani’s pieces evoking the beauty and power of nature both real (“On The Edge Of Mount Kosciuszko”) and imagined (“Scylla and Charybdis”). Next is “The Brosh Anthem,” an homage to camaraderie and friendship penned by virtuoso pianist Leo Genovese. The penultimate tune, by trumpeter Cosimo Boni, is an unpredictable and deceiving ballad about false niceness called “The Pretty Beast.” The album closes with “Newark,” bassist Francesco Marcocci’s tribute to legendary jazz elder statesman Wayne Shorter. Drummer Jongkuk Kim rounds out the quintet, with all five members exhibiting a trust and pure love of music that allows them to view the wide-open unknown for what it is, a place of boundless discovery and possibility.

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.
