Kombu Combo Jazz & World Music
Location & Contact:
Take a fiery, intense drummer, mix with uncompromising sax, guitar, bass and vibes musicians, infuse with world music from Brazil, Latin America, Afro-Cuba and India, and allow free-flowing original composition thats the core essence of Kombu Combo.
The band leader, drummer John DiGiovanni, plays pop, rock, blues, bebop and classical percussion, but throughout his career, jazz has been his home. Most music-lovers from other genres shy away from jazz; Johns concept for his new band Kombu Combo is to enable people from all genres to better enjoy and understand jazz. To accomplish this goal, the band composes melodies that take influence from jazz greats like Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Vic Feldman, mixed with music icons like Frank Zappa and Robert Palmer, and classical composers like Erik Satie. They use World Music rhythms to turn these melodies into eclectic, but distinctively enjoyable music.
Kombu Combo brings together some of the finest jazz musicians on the East Coast. To date the band has released one CD, and is working on their second, due out early 2010. The original compositions on these tracks range from dark, menacing works that take influence from African rhythms, to bright, light Samba styles that conjure up Brazilian street parties.
