Florentine pianist Alessandro Lanzoni graduated at the Conservatory “Cherubini”. He received the Top Jazz Award as Best New Talent of the year in 2013 by a jury of specialized journalists. This award recognized him as one of the greatest jazz performers, including on the European level.

His musical education is the result of an intense journey developed in two directions: his “classical” studies, leading to his Diploma of Piano obtained in 2012, gaining the highest marks, namely Distinction and Honourable Mention at the Conservatory “Cherubini” of Florence, and the study of the jazz language at the summers courses of Siena Jazz and those of Berklee College of Music at Umbria Jazz with a scholarship, and again in Siena with Danilo Perez, Kenny Werner, Aaron Goldberg, Steve Kuhn, John Taylor, Franco D’Andrea, Stefano Battaglia.

Alessandro establishes himself as a leader also internationally. He achieved excellent results in Europe, Latin America, Israel, and the USA. After listening to him in piano solo at the UN Building, with her 70 years of pure jazz history, Ira Gitler stated: “He shouldn’t be judged as a young musician. He is already exceptional and with every probability he will become even more so”. Lanzoni’s career includes collaborations with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Lee Konitz, Roberto Gatto, Enrico Rava, Ambrose Akinmusire, Miguel Zenon, Fabrizio Bosso, Gianni Basso, Renato Sellani, Tiziana Ghiglion, and many more.
