Joey Calderazzo @ KUTX 4.17.15

Joey Calderazzo is known as one of toyda’s leading jazz pianists.

Playing his instrument since the age of seven, Joey Calderazzo’s career truly began with a stream of Blue Note albums and steadily developed working relationships with the Michael Brecker Quintet and the Branford Marsalis Quartet. Throughout his career Calderazzo’s style has been described as adventurous, intuitive, and direct, a continually evolving balance of intense builds and subtler melancholy. His critically acclaimed new album Going Home, his first composing for a trio, features bassist Orlando Le Fleming and drummer Adam Cruz, “using the entire history of jazz to create, for a lack of a better word, a modern statement.”
