Jazz singer Corinne Mammana has an extensive background in theater with some imposing credits, including several stints off-Broadway. Jazz Times profiled her recently, saying, “Mammana bridges a sometimes difficult gap between what is obviously her seriously and classically trained vocal instrument, as applied to a lightly swinging book of songs. Her superb technique is a dead giveaway. But she applies her superior technique gracefully, carefully, tastefully and intelligently. Veteran guitarist and educator DiBussolo, always a technical marvel, has mellowed with the years and has evolved into an inventive and tasteful soloist, evidenced by his newest recording, Songs to Write Home About. Also featured in the Quartet are reedman Dave DiPalma, and two-thirds of the charismatically swinging All-Star Jazz Trio, bassist Bruce Kaminsky and drummer Bruce Klauber.

Veteran master guitarist and jazz educator Frank DiBussolo, a South Philadelphia native, was also profiled not long ago in Jazz Times. DiBussolo, like many of those young guns back in the day,” said Jazz Times, “were, above all, out to prove they were the ‘fastest in the west. No doubt DiBussolo was, but with the years, he has mellowed as an inventive and tasteful soloist, evidenced by his newest recording, Songs to Write Home About.

This Quartet which works frequently in New York City, at the prestigious Deer Head Inn and in clubs and concerts in their native Bethlehem, PA., specializes in jazz versions of the Great American song book. Also featured are the swinging and versatile Dave DiPalma on saxophone, and two-thirds of the charismatically swinging All-Star Jazz Trio, bassist Bruce Kaminsky and drummer Bruce Klauber.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
