Release datum:12/15/2023
Label:Dot Time Records

Claude Diallo is an internationally acclaimed jazz pianist. With his trio Claude Diallo Situation he has released several albums, won various awards and performed at numerous jazz festivals and venues in Europe, America and Asia. Claude has developed a wonderful concept called Traveling With Music which incorporates his life experiences of performing around the globe.

His intense studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston and the Aaron Copland School of Music in New York, prepared him to consider, appreciate and develop his curiosity, admiration and passion towards other cultures. Because of this, he is constantly evolving musically, and his expressionism through his compositions have reached worldwide acclaim.

The performance at the Abraxas features references from his previous releases and ‘Entrada’ a world premiere performance composed and dedicated to Claude by Wolfgang Lackerschmid. Claude, along with Luques and Tupac, share the love of their craft in this historical theatre housed in a building that was once devoted to stymie creativity, expression and love of other cultures of the world.
