Sein neues Album „Going Home (Sunnyside/Harmonia Mundi), das er mit de Fleming, Cruz und Gaststar Branford Marsalis am Tenorsaxophon eingespielt hat, ist für Calderazzo eine wichtige Momentaufnahme. Er sieht darin ein Experiment. Kann diese Musik in Triobesetzung funktionieren und faszinieren? Ja, sie kann. New York native, Joey Calderazzo’s first big break came after meeting and jamming with legendary saxophonist Michael Brecker at a clinic. Deeply impressed by the young pianist, Brecker offered him the piano chair in his touring quintet after Kenny Kirkland left the group in 1987. Just over ten years later, Calderazzo joined the Branford Marsalis Quartet, replacing Kirkland a second time after the pianist’s untimely passing. Joey’s work has been just as notable in the studio as on stages around the world.
