Giuliano Ligabue Giuliano Ligabue

Giuliano Ligabue is an Italian singer, guitarist, arranger and composer. He is an exceptional interpreter of the Great American Songbook, endowed with a crooner’s voice and a great mastery of guitar. He is one among the few musicians in Italy who plays a seven strings guitar inspired by George Van Eps, Bucky and John Pizzarelli. He released three albums: “Swing Affair” (2013) with his own drumless trio to honor the musical style of Nat King Cole, “Live at Summertime in Jazz” (2016) recorded live with a band of 8 musicians to recreate the intimate musical atmosphere of the Big Bands and “Ci può stare” (2019) which includes original songs in Italian language and international hits by Frank Sinatra, Sting, Queen, Nina Simone and Elvis Presley, expertly arranged by Giuliano. A complete artist capable to offer to the audience an incredible combination of guitar virtuosisms and an extraordinary vocality that allows him to range between many differet musical styles. Giuliano Ligabue shared the stage with several renowed musicians on the Italian and international scene, we can mention Mario Zara, Gianni Azzali, Mattia Cigalini, Alessandro Bertozzi, Paolo Tomelleri, Stefano Caniato, Walter Ganda, Davide Ghidoni, Serafino Tedesi, the English Simon Woolf and Richard Pite, the American Frank Griffith and John Colianni (pianist of Lionel Hampton, Mel Tormé, Les Paul, Woody Allen), performing in private events, festivals and clubs in Italy and England.

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.
