When, on News Day 2022, the death was announced of contemporary jazz guitarist Nick Colionne the smooth jazz community was shaken to its core. Throughout his illustrious career Colionne was never anything short of being the consummate live performer and along the way gained a well-deserved reputation as being the best-dressed man in smooth jazz. His musical legacy was colossal yet wonderfully it is about to become even greater.
At the time of his sad demise Nick had just completed the recording of what turned out to be his final album and the first single from it, ‘What You Do To Me’, is available now. It’s a slice of sumptuous easy grooving smooth jazz and comes highly recommended.
