About Me

Laurea ( vecchio ordinamento) quadriennale in lettere con 110 e lode e specializzazione in estetica musicale afroamericana con Stefano Zenni. Ho insegnato storia del jazz al conservatorio di Palermo, dopo aver conseguito l'idoneità alla docenza in “Storia del jazz, delle musiche improvvisate e audiottatili”. Sono inoltre curatore di alcune pubblicazioni discografiche e ho scritto articoli per alcuni dei principali magazines italiani in ambito jazzistico. Benchè ami alla follia la musica, leggo anche molti libri e mi piace la pittura, il cinema ed il teatro.

Viaggio anche solo per andare ad ammirare un quadro o un museo.

Scrittore/scrittrice preferito/a: Marguerite Yourcenair. Film preferito: Barry Lyndon di Kubrik. Pittori preferiti: hieronymus Bosch e Brueghel il Vecchio. Musicisti preferiti: Glenn Gould e tra i jazzisti Mingus, Ellington, Armstrong, Coltrane solo per fare qualche nome. Mi piacciono le persone camaleontiche, capaci sempre di nuove sfide e dimensioni culturali. Amo quindi il motto mingusiano “ I am 3”.

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.
