The Lagniappe Sessions :: Kolumbo

The nom de tune of sonic chameleon Frank LoCrasto, Kolumbo features vast and intricate orchestrations reminiscent of the symphonic exotica and jazz-pop records birthed by Capital records in the 50s and 60s. Strings, woodwinds, brass, keyboard and percussion all make an appearance, buoyed by an edge of psychedelia complete with synthesizers and loads of tape echo. On the heels of the project’s debut release, Gung Ho, LoCrasto and co. touch down with their inaugural Lagniappe Session, sonically juxtaposing the works of Stevie Wonder, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Brian Wilson, Duke Ellington and more.

Sonic chameleon Frank LoCrasto is set to release his next lp, Gung Ho, under the guise of Kolumbo, a nom de tune originally reserved as an outlet for LoCrasto’s excursions into the aesthetic worlds of Arthur Lyman, Roger Roger, Esquivel, Martin Denny, and others.
