Alessandro La Corte

He started to play at the age of 14, coming into Jazz thanks to the great attention his city, Salerno, showed toward this music genre. And it is right now that his personal experience begins: following the lessons of Deidda’s brothers, he performs in several local clubs. Versatile musician as he is, he has never disdained other music genres, from which belongs his desire to create new acoustics in Jazz sound. In 1994 he had his first important experience becoming part of the electric Jazz band “Carico eccessivo”, with which he took part in many Jazz Festivals ( between them “ Arona Jazz”, “ Testaccio Village”, the first edition of the “World Festival of San Siro, Venice Film Festival, etc.) At present he performs as keyboards player in the “ Cuban Stories “ band by Alfonso Deidda, with whom he has performed in many National Music Festivals (("Pomigliano Jazz Festival", "Villa Celimontana", "Polignano Jazz", Catanzaro Jazz Festival") and as pianist he has performed in “Trane’s Groove” quartet of Carla Marciano.
