Eleonora Strino

Eleonora Strino is recognized by critics as one of the most promising young talents in the international jazz scene.

The international jazz magazine “Jazz Guitar Today” featured her on the cover of its February 2020 issue, following features dedicated to musicians of the caliber of Peter Bernstein, Kurt Rosenwinkel, John Scofield, and other great guitarists of the current scene.
On March ’23, her educational book ‘Bebop Scales for Jazz Guitar’ was released worldwide. It was published by music educator ‘Fundamental Changes’ which Amazon describes as “the most important independent music publisher in the world.”

In May 2023, her first album as a bandleader was released, recorded live in Berlin in November 2021, alongside two jazz legends: Greg Cohen on double bass and Joey Baron on drums. The album is titled ‘I Got Strings’ and was produced by the renowned Italian record label Cam Jazz.
She presented the album at the Blue Note in Milan as a trio with Jason Brown and Darhyl Hall.
Eleonora has numerous collaborations with some of the best jazz musicians and maintains an active international concert schedule. She has toured and conducted masterclasses in Brazil, the Canary Islands, North America, Europe, and all Europe.

She is a permanent member of Dado Moroni’s quartet, produced by Auditorium Rai; Emanuele Cisi’s quartet with actor Filippo Timi, produced by Warner Bros; Greg Cohen’s trio; and the group “The Great Guitarist” alongside Ulf Wakenius and Martin Taylor. (The group was founded in ’73 by Barney Kessel, Charlie Byrd, and Herb Ellis, and she is the first woman to be part of it).
In addition to her performing career, she is actively involved in teaching. She has conducted workshops and seminars at the Conservatory of San Salvador in Brazil, Hemu (Conservatory of Lausanne) in Switzerland, Conservatoire Pierre Cochereau in Nice, France, the Conservatory of Tirana in Albania, and the Taller de Músics Conservatory in Barcelona.

Currently, she serves as a jazz guitar Professor at the Conservatory of Cosenza.

Eleonora Strino: I Got Strings

Read "I Got Strings" reviewed by Ian Patterson

There comes a before-and-after moment in any jazz musician's career with their first album as a leader. For Neapolitan guitarist Elenora Strino, I Got Strings marks a transition of sorts, from band member on the projects of pianist Dado Moroni and saxophonist Emanuele Cisi, to headline grabber in her own right. In fairness, Strino has led her own trios since 2016, but it usually takes the solid currency of one's own album to make the wider world sit up and ...
