Raynald Colom

Raynald Colom was born in Vincennes (France) in 1978. He started learning music at the Créteil Music Conservatory when he was four years old: he studied violin until age eight, when his parents gave him a trumpet.

In 1988 his family moved to Barcelona (Spain), where he continued his musical studies, and got some private tuition by Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove and Kenny Barron. In 1999, after finishing studies at the Terrassa Municipal Conservatory and the Bellaterra Music School, he obtained a scholarship for the Berklee Music College in Boston, where he learned from teachers such as Bill Pierce and Darren Barrett among others.

In 2000 he moved to Barcelona where he started freelancing with musicians like Albert Bover, Randy Becker, Jesse Davis, Robin Eubanks, Horacio Fumero, Chris Higgins, Guillermo McGill, Michael Philip Mossman, Perico Sambeat, Antonio Serrano, or Louis Stewart. He also traveled trough the US and Latin America as part of Manu Chao’s “Clandestino” tour. In 2001, he joined the European Youth Orchestra, conducted by Dutch saxophonist Benjamin Herman. With them, he played some of the top European festivals, like North Sea or Copenhagen, appeared at the famed Ronnie Scott’s Club in London, and performed in Ireland and Germany. He then joined Perico Sambeat’s Sextet, touring Spain, Uruguay and Argentina in 2002 and 2003. He was again invited by Benjamin Herman for a Dutch tour and also collaborated with the electronic music band “Wagon Cookin’”, appearing at the famous Blue Note Club in Tokyo. In 2005 he performed at the Mas i Mas Music Festival in Barcelona with Mulgrew Miller and José Reinoso. Raynald Colom is one of the most demanded artists in the Spanish Jazz recording scene. His trumpet can be heard in albums by Adrian Iaies, Horacio Fumero, Marcelo Mercadante, Ferm�-n Muguruza, José Reinoso, Luis Salinas, Perico Sambeat, Albert Sanz, etc.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
