Carrying on the legacy of bassists such as James Jamerson, Larry Graham or Earth, Wind & Fire’s Verdine White, Raymond’s bedrock-solid timing, tasteful tone and the sweet sticky smack of genuine funk constitutes a master class for anyone who lives by the groove.
Finally, Swiss born and Berklee alumnus Massimo Buonanno completes the trinity with his fiercely passionate drumming. One of Europe’s most in-demand musicians, his style is influenced by the precision of Steve Jordan, the grooviness of Steve Gadd and the bounce of young lions like Questlove and Stanley Randolph. His fiery solos are legendary.
Count on the Rose Ann Dimalanta Trio to deliver soulful performances with world class musicianship on their debut album "It's Time" and LIVE in concert.
