Alessandro Sgobbio Alessandro Sgobbio

Since his debut piano solo album “Aforismi Protestanti”, Alessandro keeps expanding his own personal vocabulary of compositions, improvisations and spiritual explorations throughout music. He’s earned master’s degrees at the Norwegian Academy of Music (Oslo, Norway) and the Parma Conservatory of Music (Parma, Italy). Alessandro has released 11 albums as a leader, co-leader, composer, pianist and producer, including the Debra’s Dream Sextet and the CHARM trio. He regularly tours Europe, China and the US with his co-led project Pericopes+1, recognized as “a cleverly unorthodox trio” (Musica Jazz) as well as “an authentic surprise” (All About Jazz). Alessandro’s newest release “Forests” (with his Oslo-based quartet called “Silent Fires”) is a collective exploration around the theme of Spirituality in its multiple meanings.

“Melodies that hit all the angles, accentuating crispness over flow, which adds to the intrigue and a compulsion to see where they go, even if there isn’t a lot of melodic development in the process, much how a car chase can be thrilling even if it never leaves a small area of city blocks

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.
