Gabriele Orsi is an amazing Jazz guitarist from Italy and who I will be featuring on a special playlist. I decided to name it the “Gabriele Orsi Montage.” He was very kind enough to send me several tracks from his new album “Monk’s Mind” and from other albums he has produced since 2007. They are all listed here on his website (In Italian). Here’s more of a Biography of him:

Guitarist and composer. At first, he played guitar in many rock bands but starting from 1993 he turned to Jazz. At that time, he attended Berklee summer school in Perugia during Umbria Jazz Festival.

"Jazz music is something incredible as the sky. It always sounds the same but you hear it differently every time as you tune in. It' s cool to hear classic jazz from old times, tunes from 40-70era always sound way better then any from 90-2000s era. No advertisements on the radio is great too, only nice, flawless jazz."

"As a college English and Fine Arts professor, I have spent many long days and nights grading and writing papers with your station as my soundtrack. I can't thank you enough for the perfect score for such work, which I've been leaning on for the last four years. I've always been obsessed with jazz, but like many fans, I'm selective and looking to avoid the obvious. Jazz Con Class hits all the right notes, and while I love to hear my favorites (Bird, Trane, Monk, Morgan, Hubbard, Blakey), the variety of deep cuts is what brings me back. Thank you for the thoughtful intent and love for this music that shines through in every playlist."
