Fabrizio Graceffa - Guitars & compositions
Born in 2018, this quartet presents a repertoire of modern jazz, for the most
part composed of original material written by the guitarist Fabrizio Graceffa.
This music is inspired by the sound of new jazz players from the actual underground New York jazz scene.
His is music is inspired by jazz masters like Miles davis, John Coltrane, Brad Mehldau, John Scofield, Bill Frisell and Pat Metheny but not only! We could also ear James Taylor, Ry Cooder, Ennio Morricone and many others.
“For jazz cats, this is a chance to hear how the group has developed. And the broad
spectrum of music might well be the beginning of a beautiful love story with jazz for other
listeners”. Georges Tonla Briquet (Agenda).
