Joey Calderazzo releases ‘Going Home’

Joey  Calderazzo who is noted for his illustrious collaborations to remarkable saxophonists Michael Brecker and Brandford Marsalis has come forth with a brilliant new recording ‘Going Home’ on Sunnyside Records.  Joined by Orlando Le Fleming-bass and Adam Cruz-drums, Calderazzo saw the establishment of his trio as a means to strengthen his craft by working on material and musical concepts that he would not ordinarily work on.  The exclusion of horn has made a focus on dynamics more important. Calderazzo also began to explore standards again, as he hadn’t focused on them since the duo gigs he made as a teenager and there were no opportunities to play them with Brecker or Marsalis.JOEY_photo

In light of the progress he has made with his trio, Calderazzo views Going Home as a snapshot of a work in progress, an experiment that continues to progress and wield an abundance of intriguing results. The recording provided an opportunity for Calderazzo to step away from is natural inclinations and approach the music in a new exciting way.
