Paul Collins Artist Management International, better known as PCAMI*, is pleased to announce a musical collaboration with world famous legendary bassist, educator and composer Dr. Art Davis of USA and Roberto Magris, international jazz pianist and composer from Trieste, Italy. The development of this musical collaboration will prove to be the "ascension" of yet another positive force for music.
"The accomplishments of Dr. Davis are well documented and he is a trailblazer for all to see and take note. Something that younger folks like myself can learn a lot from", said music impressario Paul Collins. "Dr. Art does not need an introduction from PCAMI* to promote his accomplishments the world over with greats such as John Coltrane and Dizzy Gillespie. These legends are jazz, with all due respect to other contributors to this art form. However, it is indeed a pleasure that a person responsible for so much of what we enjoy about jazz is still approachable and still teems with a passion to teach and reach out to others just as passionate about the music. Just visit his website and see for yourself. (www.artdavis.com) If people want to be great, they have to learn to give of themselves. That is the take away from this message."
"We will plan some performances in Los Angeles together, thanks to The Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles, there is a possibility of recording and extending this collaboration to other parts of the country and world. There is certainly a lot more living and learning to do. These are truly amazing possibilities and something to keep waking up in the morning for! The timing could not be better since Roberto Magris is due to release his new highly acclaimed CD on the SoulNote label entitled "II Bello del Jazz" in just a few weeks. This CD is on the heels of his critically acclaimed CD "Check-In" which has received radio play around the country and favorable consideration from the jazz critics from around the USA." ###
