Pasquale Grasso

Italian-born jazz guitarist Pasquale Grasso has garnered high praise from legendary musician Pat Metheny for his exceptional talent and unique musical approach. Metheny described Grasso as one of the best guitar players he’s ever heard, highlighting Grasso’s departure from typical jazz guitar styles in favor of a more classical and bebop-inspired sound reminiscent of Bud Powell. Grasso’s journey to musical mastery began in his hometown in Italy, where he and his brother Luigi, a saxophonist, were immersed in a household filled with jazz and classical music. Their early exposure and dedication to practice led them both to excel in their respective instruments, with Grasso finding mentors like Agostino Di Giorgio and studying under jazz luminaries such as Barry Harris. Grasso’s fusion of jazz technique with classical refinement has earned him recognition in the jazz scene, and his upcoming recordings with Sony Masterworks promise to showcase his extraordinary skills across a diverse repertoire.
