Francesco Gazzara
Young Roman organist Francesco (*1967) started - as many others - with the piano. But moreover he studied composition at the Roman Conservatory of Santa Cecilia, jazz piano and arrangement at the Scuola di Musica Popolare di Testaccio. His professional career began with composing for radio and tv stations. But he also collaborated with record labels as producer and pianist. It was not before 1993, Francesco formed his latest project, the Gazzara band, consisting of lots of keyboards, bass and percussions. In the center of all keyboards Francesco puts his beloved Hammond to which he has dedicated a brand new project, the Hammond Express which will include bass and drums. Francesco's music finds its roots in jazz and funk and could be labelled as acid jazz.
One of his newer projects, "Hammond Express", is described under www.scenariomusic.it/disco9.htm.
