Pier Luigi Salami

Pier Luigi Salami is a pianist, keyboardist, composer, and producer.

A dedicated leader of original projects such as the modern jazz ensemble PLS.trio, and an in-demand session musician both in studio and on the road, Pier’s versatility can be appreciated in the music he writes as well as the wide range of projects he is called to be a part of.

Born in the north of Italy in the late 80s, Pier moved to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, from which he graduated with honors in 2010.

Most recently he was a finalist in the solo instrumental section of the 2015 “Made In NY” Jazz competition. His PLS.trio debut release “East River” received a nomination for both Best Debut and New Release at the 2015 NPR Jazz Critic Poll, and a 5-star review on All About Jazz.

In 2021 the group released the follow-up to East River, "Cosmonauts".
