<!– –>

Matteo Mancuso, one of the most talented emerging guitarists on the international jazz and rock scene, will perform live on May 7 at the Blue Note in Milan

From Sicily the name of Matteo Mancuso he went around the world obtaining over 110,000 subscribers and more than 10 million views of the solos uploaded on his You Tube channel, until he was quickly recognized overseas by the most appreciated musicians of the jazz fusion and blues / rock world scene.

US guitarists of the likes of Al Di Meola, Steve Vai, Joe Bonamassa, Dweezil Zappa, Tosin Abasi and Stef Burns they recognized in him the virtuoso qualities of the guitar calling him a very young and exceptional “axeman”.

Equipped with remarkable precision and formidable speed, Mancuso crosses with total control and maximum sensitivity different musical territories, mastering both the classical guitar and the guitar electric for which he developed his own personal and revolutionary technique derived from fingerstyle.

The ability to play casually without plectrumtherefore, using only his fingers, it allowed him to express himself in a unique style, taking on the technical mastery and re-proposing it in a multifaceted and original key.

Among his influences are the pioneers of jazz such as Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker, Django Reinhardyou the saxophonist John Coltrane but also contemporary soloists like Allan Holdsworth whose creativity continues to be inspired in the execution, up to enter a decidedly more fusion dimension with the passion for Weather Report and Eric Johnson’s blues.

Some of his idols are Pat Metheny, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert and, invariably, Jimi Hendrix. Extraordinary in solo improvisation and sensibly fascinated by compositional experimentation, Mancuso is an endorser of Yamaha.
