Giorgio Crobu

Official Website

 


He was born in Oristano in 1959. He made his debut as a professional musician in Italy in 1975 with his Trio. Eventually, he has played all over Europe with different groups and highly esteemed musicians. In 1983 he moved to Berlin, where he got in contact with jazz musicians from all over the world. His musicality has been in constant search for an 'articulated sinuosity' and is characterized by an impeccable execution technique and a delicate velvet touch.

In 1986, he temporarily moved from Germany to England. He actively participated in the London jazz scene, where he showed his predilection for trios made of guitar, double-bass and drums. His music reminds more and more of Bill Evans' romantic atmospheres, Wes Montgomery's soft sounds, and the great warmth which is typical of Mediterranean culture. Meanwhile, his concerts and tours lead him to perform in and outside Europe: Portugal, France, Austria, Holland, Japan,Thailand,Indonesia ,Singapore,Switzerland, Scandinavia,Brasil,Argentina, and of course Italy, Germany and England.

In 2000 he started to work for the Teatro alla Scala in Milan on various projects. In addition to the frequent concert engagements, he also carries out an intense teaching activity with seminars held all over Europe.

From 1993 he is the holder of the chair of Jazz Guitar at the Conservatoire Hanns Eisler in Berlin. He currently lives in Berlin.
