"Alla Ricerca delle Radici"

Angelo Gregorio is not just a saxophone player. He is a person who lives in music, he plays the guitar since he was 9 years old, he is a singer-song-writer, he plays the piano, he compose wonderful saxophone’s melodies and even short novels; he is definitely a person that has something to say.

Bachelor of Music (classical sax), conservatory of music "G. Martucci" of Salerno, Italy. In 2008 he won the Dennis Irwin first price at the "Jazz in Laurino" festival as best saxophone player with the teacher George Garzone. In 2009 he won the first price of the Conservatory "G. Martucci",Salerno, which led him to study one year at the Koninklijk Conservatorium of Bruxelles. After some months he decided to move and live in this city.

In September 2010 he started to work on "Alla Ricerca Delle Radici - Searching for the Roots" his first solo saxophone CD, where he also use the loop machine. (Trumpets Records) Most of the compositions are written by him, others are revisitations of evergreen classical melodies, and some of those have a spoken introductory story also written by Angelo.

What do you have to expect from his concert? Timeless atmospheres, lyrical melodies that are floating on primitive rhythms, intimate moments, effects and sounds that are clearly guiding the listeners to faraway places through imagines, feelings, emotions and sometimes even through smell. All this happens at the moment with just one instrument, his saxophone, and nothing prerecorded.
