was born in Padova (Padua) on 1962.
I start to play quickly with my higher sister's guitar, self taught, listening
a lot of music like Beatles, english pop, west-coast music (James Taylor, Joni Mitchell,
C.S.N.Y., etc.) and italian standards.
I discovered Leo Kottke and Stefan Grossman compositions, performed
by solid guitars players still "on the road" and becomed friends: Riccardo Misto,
Giorgio "Jojo" Menon e Stefano Rampazzo. Then arrives a big passion
for the brazilian family (Toquinho, Baden Powell and Jobim),
and then I was killed listening Django Reinhardt e Wes Montgomery:
for me their way of playing is so familiar, I still love them so much.
At the beginning of eighties I am lucky to meet Luca Fattoretto,
Vittorio Matteucci, Marco Strano, Alessandro Gilardi, good
friends still close to me, I kill them with my sense of humour ;-), we divided together
the first emotions of our public Shows; after a long time, twenty years, I reunited
all the band for the Cd "Friends", allowed by
an important HiFi Italian Magazine, Audio Review.
Riccardo Misto to teach me the first "strange" chords, and some more new
instrumental music with "strage" names: John Mc Laughlin, Pat Martino,
Barney Kessel, Gabor Szabo, Jethro Tull, and patiently standed
with my first melodic improvisations.
I take part with him and the VittorioMatteucciGroup to musical performances
in Padova and sorround, guests in important musical matches.
On 1983 I composed the musical score
of "Pyx", a multi-type show concepted by Alex Luria, freely inspired from "Poema
a fumetti" of Dino Buzzati, that had good audition in Padova on june, 19.
At 1986 I start to study the master-program
of classic guitar on italian musical institute (Conservatorio di Musica), and on
july 1990 I take one's degrre on classic guitar
with good 9.50/10.00 score, under precious advices of M.° Tommaso De Nardis,
still teaching classic guitar at Venezia, Conservatorio Benedetto Marcello.
During this time I am very lucky to listen a real jazz guitar ass called
to whom I am still inspired and closed by a natural friendship; he stills give us
wonderful musical performances, alone or with his band.
Subsequently classic masterclass, during '90 I devote myself with passion
to learn tecnic and development of jazz melodic improvisation, through a self-teached-race,
listening the styles of the Master that I prefer: my first album, In Viaggio, sponsored
by Velut Luna, is the product of this hard work and my personal hommage and tribute
to jazz and his masters.From 1986 to
1996 I teach jazz guitar on private music schools,
like Music School G. Gershwin, Spazio Music School of Padova, Rock School "B. Cobham",
Bassano del Grappa, "Ass. Musica Sì", San Donà di Piave, Music School Brusegan,
Mestre, totally 17 scolastic years.
At this time I have a lot of meetings and collaborations, born in jam-session
clima, with mostly of jazz musician of Padova and sorroundings, and I put my electric
and acoustic guitars on a little number of Cd (of
Metronomes, Patrizia Laquidara, Inquisitive, Cristina Sartori)
From 1997 to
2005 I hardly worked as guitarist and "midi arranger" on a small ensamble
located in Venezia, called "Germano Orchestra" by the name of the trumpeter, founder
and director; this band is permanent fixed on summer season at Excelsior Hotel in
Lido, Venezia, and on winter season on Tschuggen Grand Hotel, Arosa, Switzerland.
Recently I enjoied so much with two beautiful Duets: with Vittorio Matteucci,
wonderful musician, actor and real ass-vocal-performer (he's one of the heroes of
top european musical shows: Notre Dame de Paris directed by R. Cocciante,
Tosca, directed by Lucio Dalla, Dracula, directed by P.F.M.); the
second duet with
Ruggero Robin, a real fusion-guitar-ass, performer for A. Bocelli
Lately I was a guest on important musical events: "Play The Voice" directed
by Vocalica, Padova 2003 and
2004, and HiFi Top Audio, Milan on 11.02.2006
Now I am arranger for a small jazz trio (g-cb-dr) for a new recording session and
parallel "live" shows on stages.
