Italian musician Francesco Zampini is one of the great guitarist of the new European jazz, continuously getting praise and recognition since he graduated from La Haya’s Conservatory in 2017: best soloist at the Chicco Bettinardi Awards, the Marco Tamburini Award and a long list of distinctions and achievements like being semifinalist at the International Guitar Competición in 2019 (the ex-Monk Competition promoted by the Herbie Hancock Institute). In one of those awards, the jury described Zampini as “one of the most brilliant talents of the new Italian jazz generation”. An extraordinary guitarist, Zampini has toured all around Europe and the U.S., and he has shared the stage with great artists such as Scott Hamilton, Ben Van Gelder and Alex Spiagin. He has released a first album, “Unknown Path” (2020), lauded by the critics.
