Aug 06, 2013 702

Luca Santaniello, New York based drummer since 2001, is presenting a new project on the fusion between Neapolitan traditional music and American Jazz. The most famous songs from the Neapolitan folk tradition such as Maruzzella, A rumba re' Scugnizz, and Scalinatella longa longa, are given a jazz flavor through Luca's deep knowledge of the Be Bop jazz style of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, thus opening a multi directional route to improvisation on song themes that distinguish Italian music heritage all over the world.

Luca Santaniello is a Juilliard School graduate in Jazz performance and has performed with legends of jazz history such as Ron Carter, Benny Golson, Lee Konitz and Joe Lovano.
