FINGER PAINTING

Label:  Trippin’n’ Rhythm

24 April. 2020








ELEGANT JAZZ R&B GROOVE COMBINATION

Continuando con su mentalidad creativa, visión y el arte en constante evolución de su música con títulos de álbumes inspiradores y estimulantes, Nick Colionne llama a su último álbum Finger Painting por la simple razón de que siempre ha visualizado su guitarra premium Epiphone ES 175 como un musical pincel pintando todas las notas coloridas que toca. La gran variedad de colores en la portada del álbum refleja perfectamente la multitud de estados de ánimo, energías y flujo que Nick crea en el transcurso de las once canciones con los colaboradores y productores de toda la vida Chris "Big Dog" Davis, James Lloyd (de Pieces of a Dream ) y John Blasucci.

Comenzó su ascenso al estrellato del urban jazz  con su álbum revolucionario Just Come On In (2003), desde entonces ha dominado el arte con Keepin 'It Cool (2006), trascendió los límites musicales para explorar reinos donde No Limits (2008), siguió con sus miles de admiradores mundiales con Feel the Heat (2011), profundizó en su alma musical para compartir algunas de sus influencias más profundas de jazz y R&B con Influences (2014) e hizo historia con su colección The Journey (2016) al convertirse en el único artista en la historia del formato para obtener cinco singles consecutivos # 1 en las listas Billboard Smooth Jazz National Airplay y Smooth Jazz Songs de un solo álbum. Nick continu'o en 2018 con Just Being Me.

Nick ha recibido numerosos honores a lo largo de su carrera multifacética, incluido el Premio Humanitario Wayman Tisdale en los Premios Nacionales de Smooth Jazz en 2010 por su compromiso continuo de guiar a los niños y su trabajo en la comunidad y a nivel nacional en apoyo de las causas del cáncer de mama. Recibió el Premio al Alumno del Año en el Malcolm X College de 1996 (obtuvo su título allí en música), Colionne ha dedicado gran parte de su tiempo libre en los últimos 20 años a ser mentor de niños en la Escuela St. Laurence K-8 en Elgin, Illinois.




Continuing to capture his creative mindset, vision and the ever-evolving artistry of his music with inspiring, thought provoking album titles, Nick Colionne calls his latest album Finger Painting for the simple reason that he’s always visualized his Epiphone ES 175 premium guitar as a musical paintbrush painting all the colorful notes he plays. The wild array of colors on the album cover perfectly reflects the cool multitude of moods, energies and flow that Nick creates over the course of the eleven tracks with longtime collaborators and producers Chris “Big Dog” Davis, James Lloyd (from Pieces of a Dream) and John Blasucci.

Kicking off his rise to urban jazz superstardom with his breakthrough album Just Come On In (2003) he has since mastered the art of Keepin’ It Cool (2006), transcended musical boundaries to explore realms where there are No Limits (2008), fired up his thousands of worldwide fans with Feel the Heat (2011), dug deep into his musical soul to share some of his deepest jazz and R&B Influences (2014) and made history with his 2016 collection The Journey by becoming the only artist in the history of the format to score five consecutive #1 singles on the Billboard Smooth Jazz National Airplay and Smooth Jazz Songs charts from a single album. Nick followed up in 2018 with Just Being Me.

Nick has received numerous honors throughout his multi-faceted career, including the Wayman Tisdale Humanitarian Award at the 2010 National Smooth Jazz Awards for his ongoing commitment to mentoring children and his work in the community and nationally in support of breast cancer causes. The recipient of the 1996 Malcolm X College Alumnus of the Year Award (he earned his degree there in music), Colionne has devoted much of his spare time over the past 20 years to mentoring children at St. Laurence K-8 School in Elgin, Illinois.
