The first in the Jazz at NAC Autumn season is Jazz Drummer, Robert Castelli

“you feel carried away into the world of Afro-Cuban music, West African rhythms, jazz rock of the 70s and 80s with rhythm par excellence. It is your own fault if you do not move with such a rhythmic design!”  Ferdinand Dupius-Panther, Jazz Halo, Dec 2020

Founding ‘Trio of Boom’ in 2007, Robert has played with different configurations of ‘Boom!’ over the years, and continues to explore new musical territories.


As a drummer, Castelli is dominant while ironically not appearing to dominate the tunes. His drumming fades in and out, and when he comes out from the shadows, you realize you’re listening to a guy who is in the same league as Tony Williams, Billy Cobham, and Art Blakey. George R Glasser, Jazz Syndicate
Castelli demonstrates many of the different aspects to being a great jazz drummer as he leads his live ensemble through his own compositions in this energetic, bouncy and thoroughly lively Party. Chris Slawecki, AllAboutJazz
