Tonino Miano

Terms like "dense lyricism" and "emotional impact" are used to describe the playing of Tonino Miano. While his analytical mind (he holds a degree in physics from the City College of New York) parses logical progressions for his improvisations, his artist's soul compelled one reviewer to call his work, "Very beautiful and very, very sophisticated." He has performed in venues such as Abrons Art Center, NYU, Knitting Factory, WKCR, 13in13 Jazz Festival, Roulette, Binnenpret, Apollohuis, Stork Music Festival and his list of collaborations include Brian Groder, Mirio Cosottini, Andrea Melani, Dinu Ghezzo, Edoardo Marraffa, Frantz Loriot, Jaap Blonk, Marco Cappelli, Lorenzo Brusci, Alessio Pisani, Jim Pugliese, Francesco Cusa and Riccardo Grosso
