Biography

Lorenzo Tucci, one of the most valued drummers in the international jazz scene, distinguishes himself for his expressive pathos and his capability in spreading the teachings of the great masters (Art Blakey, Philly Jo Jones, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams, Max Roach) of the past to the new generations, using a personal style which underlines all of his versatility.

His great passion for jazz music and drums began since he was really young but it quickly grew up at the end of the eighties, thanks to the meeting with Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez, notable Cuban drummer who had already played with Dizzy Gillespie, Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Michel Camilo. This gave to Lorenzo the opportunity of gaining knowledge of the infinite facet of the Latin American rhythmic.

After a few years he met Ettore Fioravanti and he started following the summer courses at “Berklee School of Boston” in Perugia. In ’96 he won the national jazz contest in Baronissi (SA) with the Emanuele Basentini Quartet and in the same year he subscribed to the “Europe Jazz Contest” in Bruxelles, winning the first price with the Rosario Giuliani Quartet.
The official debut with this quartet took place in the recording studio, where five albums by this Italian saxophonist were produced under several labels such as Philology, Dreyfuss Jazz e Schema.

2001 is the year of his first album as soloist “Sweet Revelation” gathering around him artists such as Pietro Lussu, Daniele Scannapieco and Dario Rosciglione.
