EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL & BOPFEST

PRESENTS

LUIGI & PASQUALE GRASSO QUARTET

NYC SPECIAL GUESTS



An evening of music influenced by Charlie Parker and Bud Powell.



Making their UK debut for the opening night of the BopFest '19 series, altoist Luigi and guitarist Pasquale, based in Paris and New York respectively, present an evening of music influenced by Charlie Parker and Bud Powell.

The Grasso brothers originally caught the attention of American musicians passing through their native Italy, including the great pianist and educator Barry Harris, and have gone on to develop international recognition for their virtuosity and devotion to further advancing the art and language of bebop.

Based in Paris since 2010 and now Hamburg, Luigi has led his transatlantic quartet since 2013. His debut album, ‘Ça Marche’ and its extensive accompanying tour received widespread critical claim. He recorded with his NYC Octet in 2014, leading to the founding of his long-running Greenwich Session large ensemble and its Paris residency. Alongside his work as a bandleader, Luigi maintains an active touring and recording schedule with such major talents as vocalist China Moses, the NDR Big Band and bassist Géraud Portal.

Based in New York since 2012, Pasquale has been making waves with his translation of the language of Bud Powell and Art Tatum to the guitar, picking up awards and plaudits along the way. Many serious guitar fans have been hip to Grasso for a while now and are aware of his jaw-dropping online performance videos and his early career triumphs, which include winning the 2015 Wes Montgomery International Jazz Guitar Competition in New York City. Now signed to Sony Masterworks, Pasquale Grasso’s profile is set to rise even further with the release of a series of stunning solo EPs through 2019 and beyond.
