Alberto Parmegiani , born in 1968, is a brilliant Italian jazz guitarist now living in Rome.
He made his bones in New York where he lived for almost 7 years.
He graduated at Mannes college of music the actual "New School of jazz" and his class mates were musicians that now are very well known all around the globe, people like the Grenadier bros, Jeff Ballard and many others. So he had the chance to grow up playing with this kind of talented musicians. He started to Compose for small groups almost from the beginning especially for trios, quartet and quintets. When he moves back to italy the collaboration with Claudio Filippini and Daniele Cappucci starts almost as soon as they meet at jam sessions in Rome and they all start to experiment with different combos. He has performed in the states as well as Europe And of course Italy where he now lives. Later his long time best friend Antonio Martino starts a jazz label in the city of Bari and he becomes art director of A.MA records. With this label he records his last cd as leader "under a shimmery grace" very well appreciated from the international jazz community.
