Mauro Gargano

Born:

My name is Mauro Gargano, I was born in Bari in 1972 in Puglia, southern Italy. I do not come from a family of musicians. There was a slightly different music in my childhood house… My father was a racing driver, the rustle of engines accompanied my early life until my adolescence. But thanks to my grandfather’s and sister’s record collection, I enjoyed and loved music, in all styles, since I was very young. I started studying jazz with the electric bass with the bassplayer and organist Vito di Modugno and then double bass with Maurizio Quintavalle. Then I followed the Siena Jazz seminars in Italy, with Paolo Fresu, Furio di Castri, and Marco Tamburini

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
