Ales De Grassi in Concert at Florence
Born in Japan and raised in California, Alex de Grassi as a boy absorbs many influences, from classic rock and blues in the sixties folk revival of fingerstyle guitarists like Bert Jansch and John Renbourn and American innovators of the genre such as John Fahey and Leo Kottke.
With this vast musical background and his incredible technique Alex de Grassi is able to create a personal sound very orchestrated playing together, with a simple acoustic guitar melodies, intricate bass lines, harmonies, rhythms and cross rhythms.
Alex has alternated over the years solo guitar album with works based on complex orchestrations that involve the use of varied instrumentation. The latest CD is “Now and then, folk songs of the 21st century” great job in a perfect balance between tradition and modernity.
