Nicoló Ricci: Pulcino

Read "Pulcino" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


With Pulcino saxophonist Nicoló Ricci bravely sets off on a musical excursion with only bassist Giuseppe Romagnoli and drummer Andreu Pitarch along for the adventure.

Nicoló Ricci: Pulcino

Read "Pulcino" reviewed by Geno Thackara


It takes a confident saxophonist to step out in the classic trio format--no chordal instrument or frontline partner to share the load, just a strong trust in one's own skill and the backing of his bandmates.

Musician

Nicoló Ricci

Born:

I was born in 1987 and I grew up in Sesto San Giovanni, an industrial town in the north of Milan, Italy. I was lucky enough to be brought up in a stimulating and creative family environment and soon I began to show interest towards music. By the age of 12 I received a saxophone as a gift from my mother and I started my studies, first in a local music school and then in the Conservatory G.Verdi of Milan. While still a student I threw myself into the jazz music scene of Milan and I began to perform throughout Italy. During my career, I had the chance to play with great musicians such as: Steve Swallow, Adam Nussbaum, Jesper Bodilsen, Gerald Cannon, Paolino Dalla Porta, Antonio Zambrini, Roberto Gatto, Giovanni Falzone, Andrea Dulbecco, Pietro Tonolo, Tino Tracanna, Marco Vaggi, Achille Succi, Bebo Ferra, Giulio Corini, Alfonso Santimone, Francesco Lento, Harris Eisenstadt, Joe Fonda, Roberto Rossi, Roberto Cecchetto, Fausto Beccalossi, Greg Burk, David Binney, Reinier Baas, Ben Van Gelder, Mark Schilders, Bo van der Werf, Clemens van de Feen

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!
