Biagio Coppa


Biagio Coppa is a saxophonist, composer, conductor, soudpainter and educator.

He believes in the importance and necessity of a logical analysis of the musical experience to get the best out of musical mainstream, therefore moving towards a deeper understanding of ancient and recent musical structures and architectures. In particular he studied the possible evolution of Steve Coleman’s musical proposal linked to the M-Base movement, the extension and application of the Harmolodic concept of Ornette Coleman, the organization and development of the sound material in the so called contemporary open forms and the consequence of an accomplished chromatic approach in the creation of an improvised language

Fabio Delvò: DNA

Read "DNA" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

DNA è disco come è sempre più raro trovarne in circolazione.

Fabio Delvò è membro stabile della Flight Band di Biagio Coppa che in questa occasione ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
