Musician

Pamai Chirdkiatisak

Born:

The beginning of his musical career was from the old cassette-tape days when his father introduced him to a rock album in secondary school. As young as he was, the sound of the electric guitar was nothing like he had ever heard before. The more he listened to it the more he was determined that this was going to be his instrument.

He aspired to become a guitarist, formed a rock band in secondary school, and that later led him onto a major turning point in his life – to join the prestigious pre-college music program at College of Music, Mahidol University. Consequently, Chirdkiatisak graduated with a Bachelor of music in Jazz Performance at College of Music, Mahidol University in 2014, and then became a guest instructor in Jazz department at the same university until 2017

Musician

Roberto Spadoni

Born:

I feel lucky. I fell in love with music and she took me by hand and guides me on the paths of life, the difficult one and the easy ones. Lights and shadows, joys and sorrows: there is no day that music does not resonate within me. Thanks to her I have been able to work with many musicians and many orchestras in precious collaborations and to play in many festivals, I have been able to carry out ambitious projects and I could perform teaching in conservatories and private institutions seeing many young people grow day by day. Thanks to her, I recorded CDs, wrote books and translated others in Italian. Quoting Duke Ellington, I can say that "Music is my Mistress". Between 2007 and 2012 I graduated in I and II level in Jazz at the Conservatorio di Musica di Benevento, where I am now a professor in Jazz Composition. My training initially was mainly self-taught, working on the records and the few scores that could be found in the years of my youth

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!
