The Frank Giasullo Quartet has created a distinctive sound, enhanced by its strong repertoire of original compositions by Frank Giasullo. Giasullo is a classically trained jazz player but his piano playing and the music he writes comes as much out of his feeling for gospel, folk, and blues as his classical and jazz background. These influences give his music a rare naturalness and ease with which listeners instantly identify, yet it also possesses emotional and musical layers that offer new delights long after the first hearing. In other words, Frank Giasullo is one of those expressive jazz musicians who uses what he knows to say what he feels.
Frank Giasullo Quartet combines thoughtful, accomplished playing with a laid-back groove and sensitive ensemble work
