Bending the future of sound, taking ivory and ebony to destinations unknown, is keyboard maestro, vocalist, composer, producer, arranger and astral traveler Brandon Coleman. A regular fixture with Babyface, Donald Glover, Flying Lotus, and Kamasi Washington’s band, Coleman represents a new chapter in the evolution of jazz and funk fusion. His celebrated sophomore album, Resistance, released in late 2018, brought him ‘All Around The World’ to Japan, South America, and Europe alongside Kamasi and traveling North America to support Flying Lotus, with his future funk band, Brandon Coleman’s SpaceTalker.

For those accustomed to Coleman’s role laying the foundation for expansive spiritual-jazz explorations in Kamasi Washington’s band, it’s revelatory to hear him so spry on his feet and down to get down. If his work with Washington contains all the weight and gravitas of Sunday church, Coleman’s Resistance has all the fun, breeziness — and yes, sunlight — of an afternoon church picnic,’ said Andy Beta of Pitchfork. At a typical Brandon Coleman show, whether trio, quartet, quintet, sextet, septet or SpaceTalker, it’s common to get the entire Sunday extravaganza.

Italian hybrid drummer, producer, and DJ Tommaso Cappellato is a musical maverick, from free‐form electronics to hip‐hop beats and jazz improvisation. From building his jazz chops as a resident drummer in NYC working with Bill Ware’s Vibes and The Jazz Passengers feat. Debbie Harry, to hip hop excursions alongside Brooklyn MC’s; traveling to Senegal to meld with local world music masters, to leading his own award‐winning spiritual jazz project Astral Travel; collaborating with experimental electronica and techno artist Rabih Beaini, and visionary Egyptian producer Maurice Louca to presenting his solo artist project “Aforemention” and his latest 2019 release “Butterflying”. Tommaso brings together his lifetime of artistic exploration and exposure to create his own concept of a jazz‐informed experimental electronic soundscape.
Tommaso was recently artist in residence at NYC’s Pioneer Works and recorded with Jamie Branch (International Anthem) besides appearing on Maurice Louca’s album Elephantine (Northern Spy); Currently recording/co-producing Mark de Clive-Lowe’s new album and is collaborating with artists the likes of Nicola Conte, DJ Khalab, Rabih Beaini, and more. He appears frequently on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM.
