MUSICIAN Born:

Dimitri Gollety

HIS MUSICS ———— His heart balances and dances on bossa nova, but Dimitri is “jazzing" instinctively everything he plays. Whether Funk, RnB, Rock, Pop or Blues, his playing and his musical chords give a more or less jazz colours to each of his creations and arrangements. He owes his inspiration to very great artists who have made significant contributions to him throughout their productions over the past 30 years. One with which he feels the most intimate is Al Jarreau. It also owes much to George Duke in terms of musical arrangements. Of course he gives a high gratitude to Carlos Antonio Jobim whose works inspire many of his compositions in Bossa Nova

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!
