Pippi Dimonte

Giuseppe 'Pippi' Dimonte started studying and playing double bass and electric bass at the age of 13. Driven by a strong passion for Classical music, since the very beginning he got the chance to play double bass in various orchestras, including ONC (Orchestra Nazionale dei Conservatori) with whom he has accompanied artists such as Nanni Moretti and others. Growing up, he developed a particular interest in jazz music, so he moved to Bologna for further studies at Martini Conservatory. Here, alongside studying, he starts an intensive concert activity, playing with various groups and collaborating with many artists, ranging from Funk to Swing to experimental music. Despite the young age (he was born in 1991), Giuseppe has had numerous experiences both live and in studio: as double bass or bass player, he has played in clubs of various countries such as Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Spain, France and Poland, and has participated in several master classes and competitions, winning scholarships both in Classical and Contemporary fields. After collaborations in various albums as a sideman, in june 2014 he debuted with “Morning Sessions”, his first work as a leader, released by FonoFabrique, record label based in Bologna. The same label which puts out Pippi Dimonte Quintet's “Hieronymus”. Currently he works in several musical projects and teaches double bass at Studio SoundLab in Bologna

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
