Alessandro Sgobbio

Pianist, composer, improviser

About Me

Since his debut piano solo album “Aforismi Protestanti”, Alessandro keeps expanding his own personal vocabulary of compositions, improvisations and spiritual explorations throughout music. He’s earned master’s degrees at the Norwegian Academy of Music (Oslo, Norway) and the Parma Conservatory of Music (Parma, Italy). Alessandro has released 12 albums as a leader, co-leader, composer, pianist and producer, including the Debra’s Dream Sextet and the CHARM trio. He regularly tours Europe, China and the US with his co-led project Pericopes+1. Alessandro’s newest release “Forests” (with his Oslo-based quartet called “Silent Fires”) is a collective exploration around the theme of Spirituality in its multiple meanings. In February 2021, Alessandro releases Hitra‘s new album “Transparence” under AMP Music & Records.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
