New York based pianist Simona Premazzi has developed an impressive body of
work as a composer and bandleader. Originally from Italy, Premazzi hails from a
small town in the outskirts of Milano, where she began playing piano at age 9.
Simona recently released her 3rd CD, “The Lucid Dreamer”, on the Inner Circle
Music Label, featuring her latest ensemble comprised of tenor saxophonist
Melissa Aldana, bassist Ameen Saleem, drummer Jochen Rueckert and special
guest, the inimitable Greg Osby on Alto and Soprano Saxophone.
Simona Premazzi’s debut album, “Looking For An Exit”, a trio with Ari Hoenig
and Joe Sanders, was listed among the best trio albums to come out between
2004 and 2008 by the prestigious Japanese magazine, Jazz Hihyo
