Paolo Vinaccia

Paolo Vinaccia was an Italian composer, jazz drummer, and percussionist who relocated permanently to Norway in 1979. He died on July 5th, 2019 after almost 10 years battling with cancer. Amongst the many artists with whom Vinaccia has collaborated, high on the list of those with international presence include, from Norway, guitarists Terje Rypdal and Knut Reiersrud, double bassist Arild Andersen, drummer Jon Christensen, keyboardist Bugge Wesseltoft and saxophonist Bendik Hofseth, along with Danish trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg, Scottish saxophonist Tommy Smith, American vibraphonist Mike Mainieri, and American cellist David Darling. While he's less-known on the west side of the Atlantic Ocean, Vinaccia—he of the witty black T-shirts, such as "If I'm Reborn I'll Do It Again" and "Not Loud Enough"—is far from an unheard-of quantity in Europe, where he has been a part of a number of important groups, including Arild Andersen's longstanding trio with saxophonist Tommy Smith

Two more sessions followed ...

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.
