The Pucciarelli Group
Thursday 11th July 2019
Tickets: £15.00 Seat
To celebrate the launch of their fine debut album, Feel Free To Feel Free, connoisseurs of cool jazz, The Pucciarelli Group will be making their first Hampstead Jazz Club appearance. Led by virtuoso guitarist, Giuseppe Pucciarelli, this superb quintet are as tight as a drum.
Graduates of the prestigious Guildhall School Of Music, The Pucciarelli Group mix up a heady cocktail of laid-back and funky jazz that’s eerily reminiscent of the legendary outfits led by guitar greats such as Grant Green, George Benson and Kenny Burrell. Shining new light through old windows, their main influences may be decidedly old-school, yet this barnstorming band somehow manage to sound utterly contemporary.
A concert not to be missed!!
Giuseppe Pucciarelli is a jazz guitarist and composer.
Giuseppe has been playing the guitar since the age of five when his father bought him a classical guitar for his birthday. From the age of 10, Pucciarelli received classical guitar lessons. A few years later, keen to further his expertise in advanced jazz improvisation and composition, he decided to go further with the music studies and, as a result, he moved to London to study at the Guildhall School of Music.
Shortly thereafter, he started to perform in the city’s most prestigious Jazz Club’s – Ronnie Scott’s and Pizza Express whilst teaching all aspects of Music Theory, Jazz Harmony, Improvisation and Composition.
Pucciarelli’s high level of motivation led him to record his first original album ‘Shall We Say It Is Worth” at the age of 23. His new album is entitled ‘Feel Free To Feel Free’ (2019) and sees him expand the group from Quartet to Quintet.
