Share Article

The upcoming sophomore release from master jazz composer and pianist Pippo Lombardo is sure to thrill fans of jazz giants such as Pat Metheny, Brad Meldau, Lyle Mays, and Chick Corea.

While most of the world practiced social distancing and sheltering in place during the Pandemic, master composer, arranger, leader, and pianist Pippo Lombardo, together with brother Piero, appropriately tapped into their collectively creative energy to produce new musical masterpieces for release in 2022 from their eponymous company, Lombardo Brothers Productions (LBP), including 10 original tracks for Lombardo's new sophomore album, "Railway Station".

The pensive, dreamy, but still powerful mood on "Railway Station" will be celebrated by fans of jazz legends such as Pat Metheny, Brad Meldau, Lyle Mays, and Chick Corea, as each of the diverse tracks combines traditional acoustic piano trio sensibility with a contemporary jazz flair, including a nod to off-meter time signatures on 'Low Priority', a smooth but catchy offering written in 7/8. Each chart showcases Lombardo's mastery of the instrument, cleanly recorded at the MAST Recording Studio in late 2021 (Bari) on a Farina grand piano. Fans of two of the Lombardo Brothers' flagship groups, Marchio Bossa and Camera Soul, will recognize Pippo's expertly-crafted melodic lines, trademark harmonic interplay, and the blending of strings and vocals, aimed at providing the listener with a rich aural experience.

Pippo Lombardo's "Railway Station" is set for global download from all major digital outlets (such as iTunes and Amazon) from Italian label Azzurra Music (Verona) on April 1, 2022 and also will be available through TIMKAT Entertainment on Bandcamp for American fans.
