Grammy Award-vinder PHIL PALOMBI, bassist i verdensklasse, som har et helt specielt forhold til Scott LaFaros kunst og originale instrument, kunne i april opleves ved tre uforglemmeligt fine koncerter m. hhv. Thomas Clausen og Ben Besiakov på Posthus Teatret, og tidligere som medlem af Curtis Stigers trio samt af TRI-FI. Palombi er en af de mest benyttede bassister i New York. Han har spillet og indspillet med bl.a. Toshiko Akiyoshi, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, George Coleman, Maynard Ferguson, Billy Hart, Louis Hayes, Vincent Herring, Etta Jones, Billy Kilson, Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman, Harold Mabern, Steve Smith, Curtis Stigers, Lew Tabackin, Mark Turner, Chucho Valdes og The Village Vanguard Orchestra.

Ud over at være en internationalt anerkendt bassist, er Phil kendt for som den første nogensinde at have nedskrevet og udgivet 'Scott LaFaro - 15 Solo Transcriptions' - LaFaros soli fra de to legendariske Bill Evans album 'Waltz for Debby' og 'Sunday at the Village Vanguard'. Har indspillet tre cd'er i eget navn, heraf de seneste 'Detroit Lean' og 'RE: Person I Knew - A Tribute to Scott LaFaro', hvor han spiller på Scott LaFaros 1825 Prescott bas, den selv samme, som LaFaro brugte med Bill Evans' trio. Phil har også en passion for at undervise, demonstreret ved præsentationer og koncerter på fire International Society of Bassists conventions mellem 2005 og 2015, på Bass2012 i København, adskillige masterclasses på gymnasier rundt om i verden, herunder Eastman School of Music, samt fire artikler skrevet til Double Bassist Magazine.

Ved aftenens koncert er Phil i ligeværdigt selskab med to af vores egne verdensklassemusikere!

Phil has recorded three CDs as a leader, with the two most recent recordings 'Detroit Lean' and 'RE: Person I Knew - A Tribute to Scott LaFaro' featuring Scott LaFaro's 1825 Prescott bass, the very same bass that LaFaro used with the Bill Evans trio.

Citat fra anmeldelse i Information den 4 marts 2011:

"Her har jeg set en seks timer lang film. Hvis I vil daske lidt til vanerne og lade en film krybe romanagtigt ind i maven på jer, hvis I vil blive i et univers, der bruger sit format til at indramme livet med tålmodighed, visdom og tilstræbt troværdighed; og hvis I synes det er særligt eller nysgerrighedsvækkende, at der findes et sted som Posthus Teatret, hvor lærredet altid udfordrer, hvor der er håndmadder i pauserne og en fuldblodsengageret, anekdotegavmild bestyrer, så siger jeg gerne - uden mere koffeinrysten på hånden: Den skal I gå ind og opleve!"

Citat fra anmeldelse i Politiken den 4 marts 2011:

"På sin egen ligefremme måde er ’En italiensk familie’ et særdeles bemærkelsesværdigt projekt. Som i ’Matador’ får man virkelig tid til at lære personerne at kende, men i modsætning til de blide karikaturer i Lise Nørgaards ’danmarkshistorie’ bliver figurerne i ’En italiensk familie’ virkelige snarere end elskelige. "

Citat fra anmeldelse i Berlingske den 4 marts 2011:

"Når de seks timer flyver af sted, skyldes det ikke desto mindre, at karaktererne er så velspillede, indtagende og elskelige i alle deres nuancer og menneskelige utilstrækkeligheder, at man må forelske sig. Gør man det, vil man få sit hjerte knust for en stund, men det - og »En italiensk familie« - er det værd."
