Diego Perugini

Diego Perugini was born in Sarteano (Siena, Italy) the 23rd of march 1976. When he was 6 years old he began musical studies at the music school of his small town. At 8 he joined the citizen's band as clarinetist and won an european contest (in Germany). When he was 13 his elder brother brought at home a classical guitar and a new love was born: during the Christmas holidays he learned all basic chords and the next year he was ready for his first electric guitar. After an initial period as self-taught, he studied in parallel classic and electric guitar. In 1993 he began to study jazz music in Milan (“CPM”) and in Siena (“Siena Jazz Foundation”); in 1996 he won an european limited-number scholarship obtaining the certificate “Highly qualified jazz professional player”.

He played in several youth bands exploring music and different genres. After developing a sound and a personal style he played as sideman with many italian (and not only) artists: Sarah Jane Morris, Cesare Cremonini, Simona Bencini, Anna Oxa and many others. Now he keeps doing music as sideman and in the meantime produces his own music and offers his skills to song-writers who need arrangements for their songs.

“Acoustic Fusion” This is his debut and self-produced album.

“...the debut album from Italian guitarist Diego Perugini... exploring a new concept in Smooth Jazz, one that will move even the deepest of souls! ACOUSTIC FUSION offers substance AND style. Exciting new music for those who want to experience something meaningful from their jazz!” ~SmoothJazz.com

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.
