Filippo Vignato Filippo Vignato

Born in Northern Italy in 1987 and raised in a musical family, he took his first trombone at the age of 10. Nowadays he performs intensively in Italy and Europe as a sight-forward sideman and as a leader of his own bands and he is considered as one of the most interesting Italian musicians of his generation.

He is active in different fields of jazz and improvised music, embracing contemporary music, Avantgarde jazz and world music. From 2014 he leads an electric trio with Attila Gyarfas on drums and Yannick Lestra on fender Rhodes. His latest project is a quartet alongside Giovanni Guidi on piano, Mattia Magatelli on bass and Attila Gyarfas on drums, which recorded ‘Harvesting Minds’, released in September 2017 by Cam Jazz.

He won the ‘Best New Talent’ award in the 2016 ‘Top Jazz’ critics pool promoted by the historic Italian jazz magazine ‘Musica Jazz’ , following the release of his debut album ‘Plastic Breath’ (Auand). Throughout his career he received several other awards: from the  as a best soloist at Barga Jazz 2011 to the Burghausen European Young Artists Jazz Award 2017. He has also got a sound academic education: he’s graduated summa cum laude at the Conservatoire National Superiéur de Danse et Musique de Paris and he studied also at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam and in the italian conservatories of Ferrara and Rovigo.

'Among the bright stars of italian jazz' - Thomas Conrad, TNYCJR - August 2017

'The winning characteristic of the electro-acoustic project from trombonist Filippo Vignato is how he keeps teasing at the complete and total immersion into electronic effect dissonance, right up to the point where an organic melody breaks through like a bold sun parting thick clouds' - Dave Sumner, Bird is a worm - 2016

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.
