Free admission
Born in Gaeta, September 1984, he is considered one of Italy’s most elegant and interesting contemporary pianists. Sanna’s music is suffused with a retro ambience married to his modern sensibility, one evidently inspired by pianists like Ahmad Jamal, Lennie Tristano and George Shearing yet separated from them by his own talent, his personal experiences, sensitivity and attention to everything happening in the current jazz scene. He won the 2007 Jimmy Award and in 2008 he scooped both the Luca Flores and Tuscia in Jazz Awards. The following year Sanna received the Armonia Arts Foundation prize. After moving to Rome he recorded with saxophonist Rick Margitza, followed by recordings with Dave Liebman, Stephen Baptist and Gege Munari two years later. Recently he has collaborated with some of the best musicians on the New York scene like Jeff Ballard, Joe Lovano, Larry Grenadier, Steve Grossman, Francisco Mela, Eddie Gomez, JD Allen, Scott Hamilton and Greg Hutchinson

Free admission
Born in 1990 of Calabrian origin but Roman by adoption, Zanisi graduated with honors from the L’Aquila Music Conservatory. He crossed paths with jazz music at the age of fifteen and his first public performance, an immediate portent of a great future, came shortly after. Enrico was initially spotted by a journalist at one of his seemingly endless series of concerts and gigs in small Roman clubs. Convinced of Zanisi’s talent he decided to introduce him to a record label. Within a year Enrico began working with Cam Jazz, one of Europe’s most important labels, eventually recording two albums for them as part of a trio with drummer Alessandro Paternesi and bassist Joe Rehmer (“Life Variations” in 2012 and “Keywords” in 2014). Duetting with Matt Cigalini he brought out the album “Right Now” in 2015. In 2012 a panel of journalists from the prestigious Musica Jazz magazine acclaimed him as Best New Talent at Top Jazz 2012, while in 2014 he was lauded by the Italian Authors & Publishers Society (SIAE) for his outstanding creativity.
