Power, Passion and Beauty - The Story of the Legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra has been published by Abstract Logix Books.

About Me

My current book is titled Power, Passion and Beauty- The Story of the Legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra. Writing this book was a journey of confirmation and rediscovery. To a great degree, my life has been shaped by ten minutes of music I heard when I was sixteen years old. I knew I wasn’t alone then, and I know I am not alone now. Over 30 years later, it is our turn to pay the music back. Power, Passion and Beauty is my offering.

Here is an excerpt from a 4-Star review from MOJO Magazine: “Kolosky has done his heroes proud with this lovingly written, definitively researched (all five sundered members and dozens of associates co-operating) and page-turning account - from conception to destruction to a kind of resurrection. Forget about punk: this is 403 chords and the truth.” - Colin Harper.

I hope you have an interest in the book.

I am proud to be a part of allaboutjazz. Michael Ricci is performing a very important service for the jazz community..

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
