Fiona's Comments

Lots of jumpy refraction, dizzying drums and oodles of osmotic Weather Report synthesis. Going, going, gone.

About the Album

Veselinovic Jazz Project

A debut album by Luka Veselinovic called "Magnetic Whale", by Veselino Project. "Magnetic Whale" features Veselinovic playing bass guitar with some of the finest young musicians from the Berklee College of Music. They recorded five of his original compositions, inspired by contemporary jazz and world music. Originally from Croatia, Veselinovic re-harmonized a traditional Croatian Folk Song, "Opatijske Ostarije," and is proud to premiere this work on the album as well. The album is inspired by the peaceful sounds of Esbjorn Swenson Music, Pat Metheny, Wayne Shorter melodies, and “Weather Report” Energy.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
