Veronica Marini was born in Teramo and began to study singing at a very young age, starting with opera singing and then moving on to jazz. She graduated in jazz singing at the Conservatorio Santa Cecilia in Rome, where she currently lives. She is active mainly in the jazz scene of the Capital but she has also had experience abroad.
Danilo Blaiotta was born in 1987. Pianist and keyboardist, eclectic musician, a very original composer and arranger, an intense career behind him as a classical pianista, having developed from a very young age the love for classical and jazz music.
Having recently heard the exquisite and inventive piano paying of Danilo Blaiotta, I was intrigued to discover how the italian pianist transferred his skills to the traditional trio format. Having studied with J.Taylor, K.Werner, L.Grenadier and A.Cohen, it’s easy to see why he is now coming to the fore as one of Europ’s most sought-after jazz musicians.
