Oleksandr Kolosii

Born:

Copenhagen-based Polish/Ukrainian jazz saxophonist Oleksandr Kolosii was born in Donetsk, Ukraine into a family of professional musicians. He began playing classical piano at the age of 6, and at age 12 he picked up the saxophone and found his lifelong passion for jazz music. His style of playing pays tribute to legendary bebop and hard bop players like Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, Sonny Stitt, and John Coltrane. Currently he combines this with a continuous inspiration from a wide array of active jazz musicians on the scene today. Oleksandr moved to Denmark in 2017 to further his career and join the Scandinavian jazz scene

Musician

PLS.trio

PLS.trio - pianist Pier Luigi Salami, bassist Martin D Fowler, and drummer Shawn Crowder - lies somewhere in between Northern European jazz and American contemporary jazz, bringing forth a highly energetic and deeply melodious mixture of modern jazz and electronic elements. Tapping musical sophistication and tech savvy to lead their artistic toolkit, the group's focus on melody carries the listener along on a journey drawn from experiences of blazing through city streets and car horns of the trio’s native New York, all the way to landscapes reminiscent of sunny, mid-western countryside fields. The trio released their second album, Cosmonauts, in January 2021 on DotTime Records, after previously completing a world tour in support of their debut album “East River”, released in February 2015 and acclaimed by press and critics

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
