and geologist too (… how hard it is often to manage the two things together !!!).
Here is my tough path to music: I started playing guitar in La Spezia
at the age of 7 - convinced by Mum spankings - under the guide of master Tony
Parisi (famous national jazz guitarist). At the age of 11 I experimented the
first rudiments of guitar with the accompanying of my cousin Francesco on drums
in our grandfathers' country house garage. From the age of 14 to 18,I played in
different rock-blues bands (E.Clapton, S.R.Vaughan, ZZTop, Almann Brothers Band,
J.Mayall ecc.). At the age of 19 I started (at the same time of my master degree
in Geology) to attend to the course of jazz guitar and functional harmony held by
master Filippo Daccň) who inspired me and made me willing to get inside
the fantastic world of jazz guitar.
was founder of the New Gem (subsequently called the Contro Fase) and I played
with Lorenzo Poli (electrical bass), Marco Orsi (drums), Alessandro
Bertozzi (sax) and Betty Quartieri (voice). With the New Gem I
won a local jazz/rock band contest (in the jury: Cuffari, drummer of Claudio
Baglioni and Santoro, guitarist of Renato Zero).
During my professional activity as a geologist (how tough it was !!!),
I participated to several musical collaborations in Alessandro Bertozzi recording
studio (Berto Studio) where I had the chance to play with important musicians such
as Alberto Tafuri (883, Jovanotti, Elio, etc.) and Lorenzo Poli (Vasco
Rossi, Ron, Battiato, Ruggeri).
From 1995 to
1998, I refined and improved my musical
studies with my master and friend Danilo Minotti (great Italian guitarist
and musical arranger). During this period I participated to the recording of
Alessandro Bertozzi (sax) albums playing with the and eclectic heavily decorated
Bullock (you'll always be in my heart).
From 2000 I joined the
Freatlones, a funky and R&B cover band; with this band I had the chance to
play with artists like Aida Cooper, Marina Fiordaliso and
Ronnie Jones in the best music resorts of north and center Italy.
Lately I played with Andrea Mirň (Ruggeri) for the organization of an "electrical"
tournče that should take place in the next future; I also participated to the recording
of last the Alessandro Bertozzi album together with
con Hiram Bullock
