Friday Night Jazz - July 2013
The Gianni Bianchini Quartet
“Hearing ’Sinatra at the Sands’ marked a moment in my life where I knew this was what I wanted. The way Basie would swing and Sinatra could sing…” -Gianni Bianchini
Gianni was born and raised in South Florida and began playing piano at age 4. Through the influence of his family and friends he quickly began playing jazz and by the time he attended Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach Florida, he had already began performing jazz concert regularly in the South Florida area.
Gianni was selected to play with Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval in the Florida International University Big Band. He accepted a scholarship from Berklee College of Music in Boston and after graduating magna cum laude, Gianni attended New York University to complete a master’s degree in Jazz Performance.
