Nick DiGeronimo

5 posts in this topic

I was listening to Andrew Cyrille's Metamusicians' Stomp CD this morniing, and was blown away by the work of the bassist, Nick DiGeronimo. Reminds me of Reggie Workman, great double stops in his playing and very lyrical. I'm not otherwise familiar with DiGeronimo, and can't really find anything on him on allmusic. Can anyone give me any thoughts or info on him? The music on the CD was recorded in 1978 in Milano (It's a Black Saint CD, with Cyrille, DiGeronimo, Ted Daniel and David S. Ware).

He's also on Special People (same quartet), and shines on that as well. I don't know if him on anything else off the top of my head, and neither does allmusic.com

This just in, he also shows up on AC's THE NAVIGATOR. You might drop by Andrew Cyrille's page and drop him a line for more information.

Does anyone have any info in Nick DiGeronimo? I was listening to a him on a Cyrille recording and a little bit of googling didn't turn up much. He's a fine player but seems to only have recorded with Maono and that's it. He's on a recording from the Willisau Jazz Festival 1978 and Cyrille introduces him and says he met him through Nick's brother, a drummer and that they are from New Jersey.

Anyone?

Thanks, carville

Was thinking along similar lines a couple of weeks ago - he seemed to arrive fully-formed and disappear just as abruptly when the Cyrille Maono quartet ceased.

Definitely saw him in the flesh and it's not a case of someone better-known working under a pseudonym.
