Gianni’s history is as varied as it is distinguished. Born in Italy to a drummer-playing father, Gianni’s musical skills were nurtured and naturally encouraged from an early age. Already at the age of 11, he began playing in local bar bands and in a traditional Italian “banda”. By then, Gianni discovered the Be-Bop language listening to a vinyl of Charlie Parker and Dizzie Gillespie and Jazz became an irreversible love accompanying his journey in music. Those are also the years approaching music composition, where Gianni creates and shapes the first melodies and experiments with chord progressions and simple polyphonic lines. At 15, he began studies of classical saxophone at the Conservatorium of Music in Latina where he played with the Conservatorium Jazz Big Band, as well as with various jazz, R&B and soul bands. At the same time he deepened the study of jazz with his saxophone teacher Mauro Zazzarini. The Conservatorium would grant him two scholarships for artistic merits and five years later he graduates with best honors. He also studied jazz composition and improvisation with Americans Bob Mover and Agostino Di Giorgio. While attending numerous seminars and workshops by the likes of “Accademia Romana di Jazz” with Fabrizio Sferra, Danilo Rea, Giovanni Tommaso and Maurizio Gianmarco, he participates at the International Seminars Arts Academy Istituzione Sinfonica di Roma. There, at the age of 18, he plays with the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert for and with one of the most influential Italian composers of the twentieth century, Goffredo Petrassi.
In 1992, Gianni started his first jazz quartet as a leader, the Railway Station Jazz followed by the Afro Jazz Quartet with which he won the International Jazz Competition “Baronissi Jazz”, participating in the New Talent Category. Two years later he earned a 2nd place award for his performance with the Orchestra Jazz a Majella (JAM) in the Professional Category. In 1999 he enrolled at the Conservatorium of Music “S. Pietro a Majella” of Naples, to perfect the studies of Jazz Composition, Big Band Arrangement and Jazz Improvisation. Gianni graduates in Jazz Music 3 years later with top honors.
