Playing guitar in Luca Filastro’s All Stars
Thursday, Friday and Saturday night

Playing jazz gives me a great sense of relax, it brings me to another world, like a type of meditation.”

Born in Pisa, Gino started to study music playing flute and then guitar at the age of 15. He moved to Rome to specialize in jazz guitar at the Università della Musica and afterwards at the Fonderia delle Arti. He has participated in several seminars held by the great pianist and teacher Barry Harris, with whom he has been deepening the language of jazz and bebop.
Additionally, he has attended many seminars held by internationally renowned jazz players, such as Siena Jazz, La Spezia Jazz, and Eddie Lang Jazz Festival.
At the same time he’s been performing live at concerts in jazz clubs and festivals with highly experienced musicians.
Over the last few years he has specialized in rhythm guitar and banjo in jazz and enhanced his knowledge of traditional jazz, dixieland and swing.
