Alan Farrington is an English-born singer, bassist and guitarist of Italian mother, born in a country near Liverpool, he began his career as a very young musician and in 1974 he was called with his band to play in the United States.

Thus began his professional activity and the meeting with the general public. In Maryland he attended an authoritative singing school to perfect, even more, vocal intensity and extension.

After the American period he moved to Italy, first to Rome and then to Milan, where he recorded two records for the “Polygram”: “Shout On” and “No News, Bad News”. Throughout his career he has created numerous important successful bands and bands.

The first, to which he owes his first fame, is that of the “Charlie and the Cats” (Farrington, Cinelli, Valbusa) with which he managed to produce eight discs and a film (Sono Fuori).

Subsequently Farrington founded several other formations, the “Alan Farrington Band”, making use of valuable musicians of the caliber of Ellade Bandini, Ares Tavolazzi and Sandro Gibellini; the “No Smoking” and the “Maxi Taxis”, with Gogo Ghidelli and Cesare Valbusa, with whom he plays rock at 360 degrees.

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.
