Info for Reflections

This solo debut album is a selection of improvisations on standards and original compositions. The repertoire ranges from Body and Soul to Over the Rainbow, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans and originals.

The role and presence of producer Giulio Cesare Ricci in this selection of recordings was as important as a second musician in a duet. This is true not only for the incredible rendering of the sound of the instrument and the place, but also for the creative environment he creates during these days of recording and his emotional connection to each melody.

An interpretation with great pathos, realism and dynamics.

An interesting musical journey in a Jazz key, ranging from the 'standards' of the Great American Song Book to original compositions, passing through the 'Song Books' of other genres and cultures. A journey that takes us through the sounds of different cultures very dear to the Anglo-Italian pianist. The recent trip to Brazil, Naples of which he is in love, Great Britain -his country of birth- are just some of the places Mazzariello intends to pay homage. Each piece reveals a precise identity accompanied by the refinement and elegance that characterise the pianist. "Playing piano solo is always an important moment of growth, it puts you in front of important responsibilities. I have learnt to conceive these moments as a form of Freedom and not necessarily a moment of solitude."

Julian Mazzariello, piano

Julian Oliver Mazzariello
born in 1978, is a jazz pianist from Salerno of English origin, a musician. He is an artist who was able to draw all his talent from the Salerno School of Jazz in order to be able to take off. From a very young age, he has performed on the most famous stages in Italy with internationally renowned artists such as Lucio Dalla and Stefano Di Battista.

Julian Oliver Mazzariello was born in Hatfield in England to a Cavalier father and an English mother. Thanks to the passion for music passed on by his drummer father, the Anglo-Italian jazz pianist began studying piano early on.

At the age of seven, he began to cultivate his talent and, when he was only thirteen, he won the competition for promising young musicians organised by the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

In 1995, Julian moved to Cava where he got to know the greats of the Salerno jazz scene. He meets, in fact, Dario Deidda and the other brothers and, again, Daniele Scannapieco and Gegè Telesforo. With them he takes part in a jam session that will remain indelible in the pianist's memory.

In 1998, the jazz pianist won the 'Massimo Urbani' award, but his career continues to grow. So much so that with Nicky Nicolai and Stefano di Battista he participates in the 55th edition of the 'Festival di Sanremo'. They win the group section. At the same time, he took part in the TV programme 'Il Senso della vita' with Paolo Bonolis.

And then there are High Five Quintet, the historic group that Julian helped found and the important collaboration with Lucio Dalla.
