Italian pianist, bandleader and composer Simone Graziano started out his musical education in Florence where he graduated with honors in Classical Piano. He then attended Berkley School of Music to study jazz under the likes of Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor and Enrico Pieranunzi.
With a string of highly acclaimed recordings as part of duos, trios and larger ensembles, Griaziano has become one of the more 'in-demand' collaborators both in Europe and the U.S.
His visit to GJF17 will be his Irish debut!
