Drummer Mark Guiliana debuted his jazz quartet last month with the release of his Family First album. If you missed the record release party at Rockwood Music Hall, here's the quartet's live rendition of "One Month" featuring Guiliana on drums, Jason Rigby on saxophone, Chris Morrissey on bass, and Shai Maestro on keys. Check out the video after the jump.
Hopefully, you remember pianist Brad Mehldau and drummer Mark Guiliana's amazing Nonesuch album from last year, Mehliana: Taming the Dragon. The explosive pairing made for some of the most interesting work either of them had made in their careers so far and it's still quite a fun listen. Back during the press cycle for the album's release, they released a group of videos recorded at Los Angeles' Largo back in October 2013 which we may have mentioned before. Apparently, they were holding back on us because today they just released the video for the song "Centinela", a composition that didn't even make the album. Watch the video, directed and recorded by Alex Chaloff like the other videos in this series, after the jump.
I already lauded the greatness of drummer Mark Guiliana when I posted his Vic Firth performance spotlight video to the website and Anthony has already presented his new album, Family First, when he posted "Long Branch", the first single from the album, just last week. So this post will be succinct and to the point. A new EPK video for Family First, which comes out June 4th, has emerged on YouTube featuring Guiliana and bandmates Chris Morrissey, Shai Maestro, and Jason Rigby. We really think you should check it out. Also, Family First is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. We really think you should go cop it. Was that succinct enough for you?
