rossano sportiello Join us for an inspiring evening of the highest quality jazz from award-winning jazz pianist Rossano Sportiello.

Born in Italy in 1974, Rossano was already performing professionally in the Milan area at the age of 16 while still studying classical music.

Since 1994, Rossano has been performing with the world’s top musicians in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Norway, UK, USA, Hungary, Israel, Japan and South Korea.

Rossano maintains a full schedule of concerts in the United States and Europe and even though he’s an Italian born musician, he’s considered to be one of the major interpreters of the American jazz idiom with particular attention to the period from the Harlem Stride piano style of the ’20s and ’30s to the Be-Bop of the ’50s.

One of his great idols is Ralph Sutton and, following Ralph’s death in early 2001, Rossano was invited to join and all-star band assembled for a UK tour and he has been a regular visitor to these shores ever since.

My goal is to play jazz and make it understandable to everybody. Most of all, i want to see people smiling and having fun

Accompanying Rossano will be Dave Green on double bass and Steve Brown on drums.

A Londoner, born in 1942 and largely self-taught, Dave began playing professionally in 1963 and has worked, and continues to work, with just about all the big names in jazz.

Steve was born in Manchester in 1968 and entertained the “natives” for a good few years. In 1995 he was persuaded to try his luck in London and his career took off.

He and Dave Green make a wonderful pairing and were John Bunch’s favourite rhythm section.
