”His compositions are narratives rife with colour, ranging from the boldest hues to the most subtle and revealing a sensitive, inventive melodist and lapidarian master of orchestral skills.” (Leonard Feather & Ira Gitler - “The Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz”). ”This Italian composer/arranger may well be writing the world's most inventive music for jazz orchestra.” (Art Lange - “Down Beat”) “His work is a sort of hypermodern symphonic poem, a new artistic and vital evidence which strongly imposes itself through the dusk of jazz and its legend and the desert of an arid world that has lost all wellsprings.” (Giorgio Gaslini)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
