Giuseppe Pucciarelli is an Italian jazz guitarist and composer. He was born on January 29th, 1993 in South Italy.
Giuseppe learned how to play the six strings instrument that would change his life at a relatively young age. He has been playing the guitar since the age of five, when his father brought him a classical guitar for his birthday. From the age of 10, Pucciarelli received classical guitar lessons.
A few years later, keen to further his expertise in advanced jazz improvisation, he decided to go further with the music studies and, as a result, he moved to London for studying at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, gaining a BTEC Level 5 Professional Higher Diploma in Contemporary Music and a Bmus (Hons) in Contemporary Music Performance, and at the GuildHall School of Music for a Master in Jazz.
Not long after moving to London, he also started to teach privately all aspects of Music Theory, Jazz Harmony, Improvisation, and advanced guitar techniques.
In the past few years, Pucciarelli has been mainly touring with his own Jazz trio across Italy and England. Pucciarelli’s high level of motivation and love for jazz music let him record his first album of original music entitled ‘Trio” at the age of 22.
Giuseppe Pucciarelli's new album is entitled 'Shall We Say It Is Worth' and sees him expand the group from Trio to Quartet. Joining him on his latest musical journey are Ergio Valente (Piano), Aldo Capasso (Bass) on Double Marco Gagliano (Drums).
Although conceptually modern, Pucciarelli’s improvising is firmly grounded in the jazz tradition of melody and swing. Combining melodicism with forward thinking rhythmic lines, his playing style is distinguished by a very soft and mellow tone.
