Profile

Background

After studying classical music for 3 years, i completed my jazz bachelor's at "Conservatorio Vincenzo Bellini" of Palermo (italy),and i achieved my Jazz master's degree at "Guildhall school of music & drama" in London. Since then i've been performing in different kind of venues round London such as "606 jazz club", "Oliver's jazz bar", "Barbican freestage", "Royal Albert Hall", "Mix Rich" etc. I've also played in festivals like "Isle of Wight", "Cheltenham Jazz festival" and others round Europe

Repertoire

When most people book, they opt to let the musician create the listening experience based on the details you provide, but you can also peruse the musician's repertoire below if you would like something specific.

I can play songs from the Real Books, including both the great american standards songwriters (Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Jimmy Van Heusen, Gershwin etc) and Jazz composers such as Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Bill Evans, Horace Silver etc. I can also prepare some solos by Stan Getz, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Chet Baker and so on. In my repertoire I have a wide range of blues tunes, classic Motown records, and I can also perform some of the famous popular tunes by request. When I play my pieces to the audience, I'm keen on explaining the compositions process, the story behind each tune.
