Maurizio Giammarco

Born in Pavia in 1952 but for the most of his life a Roma resident, Maurizio Giammarco has been a central figure on the italian jazz scene since the early '70's (see also: The Biographical Encyclopedia Of Jazz, edited by Leonard Feather & Ira Gitler), Maurizio Giammarco has made his name as a saxophonist, composer and leader of historic groups such as Lingomania (a pool winner electric-jazz band regarded as the most representative group of the '80's in Italy); or the Parco Della Musica Jazz Orchestra (PMJO), a resident big band at the new roman Auditorium (Directed from 2005 to 2010). His growing interest on large ensemble writing can be also seen by his collaboration with the sicilian big band Orchestra Jazz del Mediterraneo (see the two cds Cieli di Sicilia, The Bach Open Project: Vie di Fuga). Rooted in a profound understanding of historic jazz, and with a rich experience on the most various musical circles as well, Maurizio has arrived at a personal synthesis be it on a soloist level as well as compositional. He has played with many renowned jazz artists (Chet Baker, Lester Bowie, Dave Liebman, Phil Markowitz, Miroslav Vitous, Peter Erskine just to name a few) and with almost all of the most important italian musicians.
