Alessandro Stellano

Bass player/Composer, born in Cercola in 1985, under the sign of Leo. As a child he comes into contact with the music through the family enviroment. Neverthless he takes an interest in playing the bass only in his late teens. He begins as a self-taught, but later decides to improve his studies at the 'OrangeBug Accademy' under the guidance of Diego Imparato, he also takes part to the courses of ensamble music with Luca Gianquitto and Gianluca Brugnano.

Crucial is the acquaintance with the young singer- songwriter, Gabriele Aprile. Together with him and with his cousin and music fellow, Vincenzo Di Girolamo, co-founds the group 'April Fools' in 2004. Today he is still involved in the project as an interpreter, co-composer and co-arranger.

Thanks to his technical skills, to his keen sense of rhythm and to his eclectic style, Alessandro has already had the opportunity to perform on some of the most prestigious stages in Italy, for both pop and jazz/instrumental music. As diversified are the works as a session man in recording studio.

The release of his debut album “At Home” is close. The project originated from the need to combine the European folk music with the Afro-American tradition. The result finds its place among the new sound of Mediterranean jazz. The album is entirely self-produced, with the collaboration of young Neapolitan performers: Mario Nappi, Francesco Ciniglio, Alessandro Liccardo, Mirkko De Maio, Vincenzo Di Girolamo.

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.
