Fresh, bold, urgent, and sensitive is what comes to mind when listening to Tony Vattimo’s latest offering. Tony’s an exceptional player with great sensibilities and has enlisted some talented musicians to perform with him as you’ll soon hear, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the wonderful musical picture that’s been created just for you on, ‘Can’t Let Go’.

While festival promoters and terrestrial radio program directors keep looking to A-list artists to fill their line-ups, some of the freshest and most original contemporary jazz these days is coming from exciting, versatile indie artists like Philly area keyboardist and composer Tony Vattimo.
Drawing from his rich knowledge of jazz greats and his own vast history playing traditional and smooth urban jazz, Vattimo’s long awaited debut flows brilliantly – like a funked out, highly energized but also deep and thoughtful, stylistically varied dream.
