" Her composing style stays modern without ever being airless and swing-deficient, open without getting lost in harmony and sentimentality. And her soloing is special” [Ben Ratliff – New York Times].
New York based pianist Simona Premazzi has developed an impressive body of work as a composer and bandleader. Originally from Italy, Premazzi hails from a small town in the outskirts of Milano, where she began playing piano at age 9. A gifted musician, Simona is a graduate of the conservatory of music in Udine. She followed up her studies in Milano, by enrolling in the International Academy of Music and CPM music school, studying under the incomparable supervision of two of Italy’s formidable jazz masters, Massimo Colombo and Franco D’Andrea.
As a student she became a member of two of the Academy’s most interesting bands – the Mingus Fingers Septet, of course focusing on the music of Charles Mingus, followed by a four year stint with Enrico Intra’s “Big Band”, touring across Italy and playing a long side internationally recognized musicians including, Markus Stockhausen, David Raksin, Franco Cerri, James Newton, Tiziana Ghiglioni, Dave Liebman, Eddie Daniels, Enrico Rava, Paolo Fresu and many others.
Since moving to New York in 2004, she has earned recognition for her improvisational work and skillful approach as a composer, with an unmistakable style and depth that comes a cross in every one of her compositions. She has shown herself to be an accomplished bandleader and much sought after collaborative partner on other artists’ musical projects. Premazzi performed in all major New York jazz venues including the historic and prestigious Village Vanguard, and jazz festivals around the US.
“Premazzi, a wickedly clever soloist with a very original viewpoint”.[Frank Alkier - Downbeat Magazine]
She has performed, collaborated and/or recorded with: Greg Osby, Jeremy Pelt, Dayna Stephens, Melissa Aldana, Will Vinson, Seamus Blake, Wayne Escoffery, J.D.Allen, Logan Richardson, Grant Stewart, Stacy Dillard, Billy Drummond, Victor Lewis, Ben Allison, Ari Hoenig, Jaleel Shaw, Jason Brown, Marco Panascia, Ameen Saleem, Joe Sanders, Quincy Davis, Rodney Green, E.J. Strickland, Justin Brown, Rudy Royston, Johnathan Blake and many more fine artists.
" Premazzi excels as both pianist and composer. Premazzi’s solos spin and dart, at times restarting mid- thought to follow a surprising, unexpected path. But her melodic spins never detract, they simply surprise. She’s inventive, but always swinging." [Ken Micallef – Downbeat Magazine]
Simona recently released her 3rd CD, “The Lucid Dreamer”, on the Inner Circle Music Label, featuring tenor saxophonist Melissa Aldana, bassist Ameen Saleem, drummer Jochen Rueckert and special guest, Greg Osby on alto and soprano Saxophones. Her debut album, “Looking For An Exit”, a trio with Ari Hoenig and Joe Sanders, was listed among the best trio albums between 2004 and 2008 by the prestigious Japanese magazine, Jazz Hihyo. Her highly acclaimed second album, “Inside In”, featured her band, “The Intruders” with Stacy Dillard on tenor saxophone, bassist Ryan Berg and drummer Rudy Royston.
“Simona Premazzi is one of the more exciting and poignant pianists on the current NewYork scene” [Gary Heimbauer – Jazz Inside magazine]
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW: (A young Italian jazz pianist, Simona Premazzi has been playing gigs steadily in New York since 2007 or so, and performing with Greg Osby’s quartet more recently. Her third album, “The Lucid Dreamer,” a quartet record including the saxophonist Melissa Aldana, has just been released by Mr. Osby’s label, Inner Circle.) She’s bringing a lot to the table. Her composing style stays modern without ever being airless and swing-deficient, open without getting lost in harmony and sentimentality; idea driven but so much that the listener needs explanations. (Although in “Love Is Not All,” she forms melodic piano phrases aligning with Edna St. Vincent Millay’s voice reading her poem of that name — an idea that Jason Moran used in “Ringing My Phone.”) And her soloing is special: She’s picking up on a complex, heavily rhythmic and idiosyncratic tradition that goes back to stride piano and runs through Thelonious Monk and Andrew Hill. Her solos move in fits and starts, flowing and abrupt, always interesting. [Ben Ratliff]
