Alessandro’s first musical misadventure was as a self-taught musician, fascinated by jazz music. In his hometown in Italy, he studied with his first mentor, pianist Daniele Tione, who showed to him that what really matters in music is not the ear but the nose, and looking in the mirror Alessandro realized his great potential.
With the intention of studying something useful for a change, Alessandro also pursued a career in Mathematics in the Università degli Studi di Torino, but then relocated to France to escape far away from numbers and algorythms. He completed his studies at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Nice, Côte d’Azur. There, he collaborated with French musicians, among them saxophonist and mentor Jean-Marc Baccarini, who introduced him to total improvisation, further reducing his chances to make a living out of music and make his grandma happy.
