Giulia Valle

Bassist and Composer Giulia Valle was born in San Remo, Italy but raised in Barcelona. Her love for music began at a very young age—from classical to Italian showgirl Rafaella Carrá. She began studying piano at eight years old. When she discovered Jazz just a few short years later Mingus’ “Goodbye Porkpie Hat” and Brubeck’s “Blue Rondo à la Turk were the first pieces that stuck in her mind. “Live at Pershing” from Ahmad Jamal Trio was the first record she learned by heart, hammering away on her father’s Farfisa keyboard. Much of her musical education is owed to her father who, during her childhood, spent many months a year in Brazil and Argentina, bringing back tapes for Giulia of the folkloristic music he encountered: Samba, Baiao, Bossa, Chacarera

The commitment that this group brings to these compositions is what brings ...

Giulia Valle Group: Danza Imprevista

Read "Danza Imprevista" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
