(Samo Records, 2010) features 10 original compositions and includes a great band, with one of the best tuba players in the world- Michel Godard (France), Samo Salamon on guitar and one of the best European drummers- Roberto Dani (Italy). The album is available everywhere on the internet, including Amazon, emusic and iTunes.

What critics are saying about Samo Salamon:

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
