“Jazz music is an international language. Its influence crosses space and time. This recording celebrating the coming together of nearly three generations of great jazz musicians collaborating between two continents! My good friend, trombonist Massimo Pirone, a much in demand trombonist in Rome, Italy, has produced a fantastic tribute to and with legendary fellow trombonist Dick Nash (now in his 90’s and still wailing!). As an added bonus, we get to hear my incredible friend and inspiring Los Angeles based trombonist and colleague, Alan Kaplan. Whether it’s a swinger or a beautiful ballad, the shared joy and celebration of jazz and trombone jumps out on every track. Bravissimo!”

Press reviews

“It’s so great to hear three friends sharing the joy of music and playing together with such camaraderie. Kudos Massimo on a wonderful project. Congratulations to all of you.”

—Bob McChesney (Master jazz and studio trombonist based in L.A.)

“Massimo Pirone has been confessing his admiration for the great jazz and studio trombone players… his heroes, as he says… for many years now. Renowned and legendary players such as Bill Watrous, Dick Nash, Frank Rosolino, Carl Fontana, and bass trombonists such as George Roberts, Kenny Shroyer, Bill Reichenbach and others. Well, upon listening to this collection of tunes, it is obvious to me that Max has learned and taken the stylistic aspects of all of them in crafting his own distinct and amazing style! Of course, being a bass trombonist myself, I am especially impressed with his jazz playing on bass trombone, demonstrating amazing improvisational facility even in the most cavernous depths. Max, I think your tenor and bass trombone heroes would be very proud of you… and now, you will undoubtedly inspire a whole new generation of trombonists to have you as one of their heroes!”

—Rick Bullock (Renowned L.A. bass trombonist)

“Any jazz trombone aficionado will be delighted with Massimo’s latest project. Massimo’s talent as an arranger brings enjoyment to both performer and listener. As you hear each track, you will notice throw backs to Jay & Kay, along with tributes to the styles of other trombone legends. This collaboration with such an amazing group of musicians, especially the solo work of Alan Kaplan and the incomparable Dick Nash, is a true reflection of Massimo’s humility, kindness, and joy that he brings to so many people around the world. Enjoy!”

—Dave Steinmeyer (One of the most sought-after jazz trombonists in the music world)

“Massimo Pirone has captured lightning in a bottle. As if his own fantastic musicianship wasn’t enough, the recording you—the listener—now hold in your hands pairs our able protagonist with the great Alan Kaplan and the deservedly legendary Dick Nash. Three distinct musical personalities are captured here, and not only do they complement one another; they give rise to a fourth entity: that of the GROUP. Lovers of the trombone will want to add this gem to their collections. Bravo, gentlemen! I am honored and proud to call each of you my friend!”

—Scott Whitfield (Acclaimed trombonist, composer, arranger, leader and vocalist)
