Felice Clemente

Born:

My passion for music grew naturally in a family environment where music was the air that we breathed, thanks to my grandfather, a clarinetist. Under his guidance I started my journey with the clarinet, then I continued my studies at the Conservatory of Milan with Maestro Tessari. Soon I obtained my degree. However, my classical studies had only opened a door for me, leading to the immense musical world that was to be my life. I discovered JAZZ and the saxophone! At that point I began my studies with the saxophonists Paolo Tomelleri, Pietro Tonolo and Tino Tracanna, and graduated with flying colours under the guidance of Maestro Tracanna. Since then, I have never stopped, between masterclasses, teaching qualifications, recording records, and engaging in collaborations with amazing artists… I could tell you all about it with plenty of details (although for those is best to refer to my “official biography“), but I would rather mention only one particular episode. I remember it as if it was yesterday

Felice Clemente: Solo

Read "Solo" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Felice Clemente affronta il lavoro in solitudine, prova impegnativa per qualunque strumentista, ma certo particolarmente ardua per chi si misura con le ance. Lo fa alternando due sassofoni, il tenore e il soprano, e il clarinetto, registrando in un ambiente suggestivo e dalle sonorità particolari qual è una chiesa--quella di Montecalvo Versiggia, nel pavese--e affrontando un ...
