Born in Rome (Italy) in 1956, began to interested music in the first 70’s, do the first steps studying drums, my first group was formed by me – drums, Umberto Fiorentino – guitar (now great protagonist of Italian jazz and not only), Riccardo del Fra, double bass (currently director of Jazz Department of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris,France (CNSMDP)), Enrico Orsini – Trumpet and Adriano Mordenti – Tenor Sax. Then, the guitar for the “singer” .. typical of … I subscribe (80’s) to SIAE (Italian Copyright Office) and write a little bit of pop for almost italiangroup (Milk & Coffee and Santarosa). 

After discovering a community of musicians gathered in Kompoz site and having worked with many of them I decided with other musicians, David Wright, Gianluca Grasso  and Rob Glass, to form the group named Phonograph Team Project. In the meantime, I published in my name 2 CD: Autumn in Rome (2015) and Accidental Rolling (2016).
