Alan Dammit

Eclectic composer and author, guitarist, singer and producer from Italy. He also plays piano and bass. Alan respects each language and musical style in its original form so instead of mixing heterogeneous music he usually prefer to work at different projects. He said 'I like the challenge to write root music in its original form respecting the languages: spread and preserve great music with a lot of history, trying to say something new and to push ahead the tradition... and yes I feel proud about it'. He writes full scores for instrumentalists the old good way (Duke Ellington, Gershwin etc.) His composing activity started in the 80's. He is member of SIAE since 1990. He has about 200 songs (and instrumentals) registered. His songs vary from blues to swing to jazz, from neo-rockabilly to surf and more. He's also interested in Musical and Movie Soundtracks. Since 1997 he has become a sort of young artist developer. He loves to include talented young artists in his live bands (i.e. The Flying Cats). His talent and charisma as a composer earned him the esteem of many musicians in time. Like Paolo Tommasi (double bass teacher and player), the double bassist Antonella Mazza, many singers and more. In the field of jazz he prefers a classic style New Orleans or a bluesy style as well as swing and be bop style. One of the most important and fascinating jazz songs written by Alan is “Look Look Look” sung by the vocalist Irene Di Vilio (From Milan)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
