Ludovico Granvassu

I'm the Editor-in-Chief of All About Jazz Italia and host the Mondo Jazz radio program from Brooklyn.

About Me

After a stint as host of “Jazz with an Accent” on Boston's WHRB (95.3 FM), Ludovico Granvassu, with the support of All About Jazz's founder Michael Ricci, launched the Italian edition of All About Jazz in December 2000.

Many years and thousands of edited articles later, he continues to enjoy being the Editor-in-Chief of the Italian articles and reviews of All About Jazz, coordinating the Italian staff, and carrying out the day-to-day management of the Italian content for allaboutjazz.com

He is mostly driven by the deep belief that, even though Jazz is a quintessential United Statesian art form, it has now become a universal language spoken all over the world with very diverse, and at times strong, accents, as a true lingua franca. And there lies its vitality and its capacity to endlessly evolve and surprise us, as it has done from the beginning.

I like to think that, even though Jazz is a quintessential United Statesian art form, it has now become a universal language spoken all over the world with very diverse, and at times strong, accents, as a true lingua franca. And there lies its vitality and its capacity to endlessly evolve and surprise us, as it has done from the beginning.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
