Pietro Tonolo

Born:

Pietro Tonolo was born in Mirano (Venice) in 1959, and began to play jazz professionally in 1979, leaving behind an alredy blossoming career as a classical violinist.

Musician

Ottimo Massimo Grand Band

Ottimo Massimo is a dog, the dachshund to be more precise. It’s the dog of Cosimo Rondò di Piovasco, the Baron in the Trees by Italo Calvino. Between Cosimo and the dachshund there is a very special relationship, special as it is Ottimo Massimo, Andrea De Martini’s project, musician and composer from Sanremo, the city of Italo Calvino. Ottimo Massimo is a constantly changing idea, research and transformation of its own identity. A part of its personality is findable in “Tella Tingia Te”, recorded work of 2017, with the participation of guests such as Antonio Faraò, Luigi Di Nunzio and Giampaolo Casati. And it’s because of the help of Casati that Ottimo Massimo choses to explore a new dimension. The 17th of November 2018, after the La Gaude festival, Andrea ‘Dema’ De Martini is on the stage, dismantling his instrument, but the movements are very slow - and he has to hurry, because it’s time for another band after them - the eyes are lost, the mind is elsewhere, it’s clear

I cinque protagonisti del jazz italiano si frequentano da tempo e condividono simili coordinate espressive: un fresco e ispirato modern mainstream, di chiara impronta melodica. Dopo varie esibizioni live, nell'aprile 2107 è venuto il momento di documentare ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
