On The Record: Mark Guiliana In 12 Songs
By: Rusty Aceves

Dhafer Youssef ‘” ‘Odd Elegy’ from Abu Nawas Rhapsody (2010)
Guiliana makes a major impression on Tunisian oud virtuoso Youssef’s 2010 release, featuring bassist Chris Jennings and piano star-in-the-making Tigran Hamasyan. This live video from the 2010 Jazz Sous les Pommiers festival captures their otherworldly musical telepathy.

Beat Music ‘” ‘Public Interest’ from Beat Music (2013)
Guiliana’s deep connection to the beat making genius of artists like Aphex Twin and Squarepusher comes together in this improvised project featuring keyboardist Jeff Babko, bassist Tim LaFebvre, and electronics whiz Troy Ziegler.

Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet ‘” ‘The Mayor of Rotterdam’ from Jersey (2017)
Guiliana’s most recent album with his ever-evolving Jazz Quartet is clearly his most personal, featuring pianist Fabian Almazan, saxophonist Jason Rigby, and bassist Chris Morrissey, who penned this evocative track.
