A consummate artist with a multi-faceted career, Italian pianist Antonio Ciacca has emerged as a modern-day Renaissance Man of jazz: he tours internationally as a performing artist, curates concerts in his position as the Director of Programming at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and trains the next generation of jazz leaders by teaching at the Juilliard School of Music. As a pianist, Ciacca has collaborated with such jazz luminaries as Benny Golson, Joe Lovano, Wynton Marsalis, and Steve Grossman, and he has recorded six albums as a bandleader. Ciacca's latest album, Lagos Blues
