Alessandro’s first musical misadventure was as a self-taught musician, fascinated by jazz music. Alessandro also pursued a career in Mathematics in the Università degli Studi di Torino, but then relocated to France to escape far away from numbers and algorythms. He completed his studies at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Nice, Côte d’Azur. There, he collaborated with French musicians, among them saxophonist and mentor Jean-Marc Baccarini, who introduced him to total improvisation.
In 2011, Alessandro moved to New York City, worked as a freelance pianist, toured internationally with singer Yana Bibb and graduated in Jazz Performance at the City College of New York. Under the mentorship of pianist Marc Copland, Alessandro developed an idea of music that is intensely groovy yet intuitive and freely improvised. This musical identity allowed Alessandro to connect with like-minded musicians and to create his own NY-based group, with which he performs regularly, showcasing new musical concepts that push the boundaries of modern jazz. This sound is captured in Alessandro Fadini’s debut album, “It Was A Dark And Stormy Day”, published by Freshsound New Talent
“The new album reflects this young, up-and-comer’s fresh appreciation for jazz improvisation and natural affinity for songwriting. Listeners will find the music endlessly fascinating in spite of the liberties the musicians take with harmony and hidden melodies.” – Carol Banks Weber, AXS
“A student of Marc Copland, Fadini and his left leaning jazzbo pals serve up a distinctly Euro left leaning sound as they meld the sound of freedom with the outer edge of the mainstream making a bid to give us fourth stream jazz.” Chris Spector, Midwest Record
