This guitarist was born in Naples, Italy. He comes from a classical background and is also a singer & composer. Brazilian music has been a big influence in his classical guitar studies, and his wide interest in music made his compositions different in style one from the other.
He can be booked as a solo guitarist, in a jazz duo or jazz band. He also performs solo or as a duo singing Neopolitan Songs and other Italian music.
His quintet is made up of top jazz musicians, which open his music to a great interpretation where each of them express themselves in a modern jazz language, without losing contact with the soul of the composer.
A professional Guitarist/vocalist and entertainer whose musical talent and interpretation has helped to establish him as one of the London’s finest singer and guitarist, from Jazz to Latin through Soul and Blues.
Having studied Classical guitar in Naples, he developed a career not only as a composer and band leader but also as a session musician.
His latest project is “Live Music for Silent movies”. The 1st movie he has compiled music and provided accompaniment for is Charlie Chaplins The Kid (1921)
Featuring composers from Brasil, France, Venezuela & his own compositions. The main inspiration for this project is the composer Anibal Augusto Sardinha (Garoto) (1915-1955) who is of the same era as Chaplin himself. Garoto’s music weaves in and out of the drama effortlessly. Chaplin & Garoto as a pair the two share a joyful irony and at the same time depth of artistry.
