Rick Alberico

Rick Alberico Jazz Project

featuring Trumpeter, John Piazza, Jr.

 

 Rick Alberico performs straight-ahead jazz featuring a dynamic blend of Bebop, blues, ballads, and original compositions.  This appealing saxophonist, composer, and bandleader is known for his beautiful alto and powerful tenor sounds.  Rick began playing sax at the age of four and after college, he went on to spend more than a decade as a working musician in the jazz clubs of New York City. Rick has since electrified audiences throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia, North Africa, and the Caribbean. Now, as a veteran musician, he leads the Rick Alberico Jazz Project bringing together a selection of top musicians on a project-by-project basis to showcase their talents and his rich musical skills. After a career spanning more than three decades, Rick now makes his home in the Washington, D.C. area.

Featured artist, John Piazza, Jr. is a jazz trumpeter, educator, and jazz promoter.  As a young artist, born and raised in Utica, New York, John learned and perfected his craft from Upstate New York legends such as JR Monterose, Jack Palmer, Rick Montalbano, Danny D'Imperio, Sal Alberico, and his mentor, Sal Amico.  John toured and performed worldwide for a decade before returning to Utica and establishing himself as a performer and promoter of world class jazz events in the Central New York region.  More recently, John has taken up residence in the South Shore of Massachusetts where he is a very active musician and the founder of the South Shore Jazz Collective which performs throughout the Boston area.  John also devotes a great deal of his time to mentoring and developing the next generation of jazz musicians.

Fans of high quality, straight-ahead jazz can enjoy the Rick Alberico Jazz Project on two nights with different rhythm sections each night.
