Jeff Colella is one of LA’s busiest jazz pianists. Besides performing in concert as a solo artist, with his trio and with bassist Putter Smith, he maintains a very active schedule as an accompanist, recording artist, arranger, clinician and teacher.
Jeff toured with the late, legendary Lou Rawls as his pianist and conductor for nearly sixteen years until his untimely passing in 2006. He appeared with Rawls at jazz festivals, clubs, and with orchestras throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Jeff has released three prior trio recordings, “Alone Together”, “Letting Go” and “So Tender”. …full bio
