JUNE 1st 2019, NEW YORK


JOE DE GREGORIO “REUNION” TRIO at 6 pm Live at Gin Fizz Harlem – admission 15$

Pianist, composer and vocalist Joe De Gregorio was born in Rome. Active as a performing artist on the International scene since 15 years, during his career has been consistently performing in Europe, Northern Africa and the US (NY), setting his personal journey on the pathways interconnecting these three continents so key to Jazz history. He’s back in NYC to perform his trio with two dear friends, remarkable NYC bassist and composer Ike Sturm and distinguished NYC based Italian drummer Roberto Giaquinto. With Roberto, resident drummer of his first Italian trio, Joe recorded his first album as a leader back in 2009: “Pictures of Life”.“This concert feels like a true friends reunion and friendship celebration. Two years have passed since the last time I played with Ike in NYC during my 2016-2017 Residence at Bonafide Club; over ten years since my last session with Roberto! I’ll be showcasing some of my early original compositions and some of my most recent works. My music is a crossover dimension embracing the diverse multicultural influences, flavors and colors that I have absorbed around the World. Get ready for a musical and spiritual journey, I’m excited to see you there!”
