"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. 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 – New York Times]

A fearless modernist composer and improviser with a deeply romantic lyricism at her core, 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 8 and a half. 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 across 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 and abroad. Highlights of her musical path include a few years collaboration with Greg Osby 4 and with The Jeremy Pelt 5et.

“Premazzi, a wickedly clever soloist with a very original viewpoint”.[Frank Alkier - Downbeat Magazine] 

Her soon to be released new album “Outspoken”, the 4th on her name, features her latest project, a quartet with long time collaborator saxophonist Dayna Stephens, bassist Joe Martin, drummer Nasheet Waits, guest trumpeter and producer Jeremy Pelt and guest vocalist Sara Serpa. 

Among the many, she has performed, toured and/or recorded with: Jeremy Pelt, Greg Osby, Dayna Stephens, Melissa Aldana, Tineke Postma, Ralph Alessi, Jerome Sabbagh, Will Vinson, Seamus Blake, Wayne Escoffery, J.D. Allen, Logan Richardson, Joe Martin, Grant Stewart, Stacy Dillard, Billy Drummond, Victor Lewis, Ben Allison, Rick Rosato, Clovis Nicolas, Pablo Menares, Linda Oh, Jonathan Barber, Ari Hoenig, Damion Reed, Matt Brewer, Jaleel Shaw, Jason Brown, Marco Panascia,  Ameen Saleem, Joe Sanders, Quincy Davis, Rodney Green, Sara Serpa,  Alice Ricciardi, E.J.
