• Pasquale Grasso Trio
     Friday, Jun 28th, 2024
     7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Guitarist Pasquale Grasso‘s musical journey is nothing short of extraordinary, marked by accolades from legends like Pat Metheny and a talent that transcends genres and eras. Rooted in the bebop tradition of Charlie Parker and Bud Powell, Grasso’s guitar wizardry has earned him a reputation as one of the most significant talents in modern jazz. His ability to channel the essence of piano legends onto the guitar is unparalleled, creating a sound that is both fresh and deeply rooted in tradition. Grasso’s solo-guitar EP series, released under Sony Masterworks, showcases his mastery of the instrument, combining midcentury jazz influences with classical finesse to create a signature style that is as evocative as it is unprecedented.

Grasso’s musical journey began in his hometown in Italy, where his passion for jazz was nurtured by his family’s love for music. Guided by mentors like Agostino Di Giorgio and influenced by jazz workshops with luminaries like Barry Harris, Grasso honed his craft and developed a unique perspective on jazz guitar. His move to New York City in 2012 marked a new chapter in his career, leading to collaborations with renowned musicians and a packed gig schedule around the city. With projects like “Pasquale Plays Duke,” featuring vocalists Samara Joy and Sheila Jordan, Grasso continues to push the boundaries of jazz guitar while staying true to the timeless legacy of the music that inspires him.
