Biography

The album “Aria” is a magical duet between classical and acoustic guitarist Bebo Ferra and double bass player Paolino Dalla Porta.

“This is a great example of the art of the musical duet.” - Ralph Towner

Bebo Ferra - Classical and Acoustic Guitar Winner of the 1991 Jazz “Concorso” contest (Italy’s most prestigious jazz contest), Bebo has collaborated with Europe’s and America’s most important musicians. His discography includes over 20 CDs recorded with musicians such as Paolo Fresu, Franco D’Andrea, Pietro Tonolo, Gianni Coscia, Mauro Negri, John Stowell, Enrico Rava, Gianluigi Trovesi, Paul McCandless. He is currently teaching jazz and advanced harmony courses at the C.P.M. of Milan, and numerous master classes at the Scuola Civica “Monteverdi” of Cremona.

Paolino Dalla Porta - Double Bass Born in Mantua in 1956, Paolino Dalla Porta first studied guitar, but by the end of the ’70s he was active as a bassist on the national jazz scene. Working as a member of many key groups in the Milan area (D.O.M. Alia Orchestra, Nexus), his strong support and melodic feeling was sought after by pianist Arrigo Cappelletti, saxophonist Claudio Fasoli, and vocalist Tiziana Ghiglioni. His long-standing collaboration with excellent pianist Stefano Battaglia resulted in a string of CDs of various inspirations. With drummer Fabrizio Sferra, he recorded several CDs dedicated to contemporary jazz repertoire featuring compositions by Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy, Egberto Gismonti, Charlie Haden, Steve Swallow, and now holds a Trio workshop for young piano trios in Siena.
