Filippo Bonaccorso Filippo Bonaccorso

Starting out on piano and drums, Filippo Bonaccorso gradually moved from being self-taught at a young age to attending several prestigious music schools, where he had the opportunity to study with teachers such as Agostino Marangolo, Giuseppe Urso and Giovanni Renzo for a basic foundation in jazz. He also attended many clinics (e.g. Giulio Capiozzo, John Scofield) and seminars (Roccella Jonica, Berklee-Perugia, Siena, Nuoro, Avigliana), where he honed his individual drumming technique with Eric Echampard, Ron Savage, Tyshawn Sorey and Ettore Fioravanti. He also studied new techniques in collaborative improvisation with Claudio Lugo, theory and analysis of harmonic improvisation with Larry Monroe, and atonal composition and improvisation with George Garzone. All the while, he also focused on increasing his skills and relationships with other musicians in both small and large ensembles. He was engaged as a drummer for the “Messina Jazz Orchestra” directed by Giovanni Renzo, as well as for the “Jazz Workshop” directed by Salvatore Bonafede, where he studied and played with Kenny Wheeler. He received the degree of “Theory and Solfeggio” at Vibo Valentia Academy of Music. Since 1996 he has been an active gigging musician involved in various projects such as “Crossroads”, “Fata Morgana Ottestra”, “Controtrio”, and “E(c)lectric Band”. Together with pianist Luciano Troja, he founded and has been coordinating the “Pannonica Jazz Workshop” in Messina (Italy) for the study and development of jazz and experimental music

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.
