Gianni Salinetti

Gianni Salinetti is a musician grown in a world of sounds across the great masters of the past and the new waves of innovations bought in the last decades.

He began his path as a self-taught musician and continued his studies with great Italian musicians like Umberto Fiorentino, Fabio Zeppetella, Ramberto Ciammarughi, Dario La Penna, John Arnold.

His love for composition leads him to work mostly on original music , looking for a “straight ahead” and open language spacing from acoustic instruments to electronic textures.

He has worked and still does with many jazz musicians of the new scene in Rome and with other italian musicians like Luca Aquino, Paolo Botti, Raffaele Matta.

He recently recorded his first album as a leader, “Shifting Point” with John B. Arnold on drums, Manuel Magrini on Piano, Francesco Pierotti on bass and Raffaele Matta on guitar.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
