Massimo Discepoli

Drummer and multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and teacher, since many years Massimo Discepoli works in the most different areas of music. He began his artistic career studying and participating in workshops with leading international masters, also attending the Berklee Schools clinics at Umbria Jazz 2004, receiving compliments by Giovanni Tommaso. Among the most important projects that see him involved in that period should be noted the trio Vibrham, active between 2004 and 2006, that allowed him to create an original fusion of jazz, funk and drum ‘n’ bass. With the trio he realizes the self-titled album in 2006 (which also contains his own compositions), as well as taking part in an intense concert activity. At the same time he began to study piano, bass and guitar, and also approaching electronic music; here he got the idea to start making his own music, which became reality with the creation of the Nheap project

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
